In Secret Sound Stories, a personal narrative for each visitor is created inside a space (exhibition, urban landscape, city, street, laboratory, museum...). V XX Zweetz presents audio tales into wifi headphones told by hidden actors and written specifically for a place/event. The stories are directly inspired by selected objects (photographs, concepts, images, elements) and the actors guide the listener into their world by giving them a voice and a hidden story.
The rest of the visitors are unaware that, at a few inches from them, an intimate parallel secret environment is being created through a personal sound map.
