The participatory project "SECRET SYMPHONY" is an audio-visual experiment which bases on 14 participants who shared a personal secret with each other and summarized every secret in a personal keyword.

Instructions for the participants were:
1) Sing your personal keyword and record it
2) Install your recording as your ringtone on your mobile phone
3) Ask a friend of you to call you at 14 o'clock sharp

Its conceptual framework concentrates on how to reward the contributors by making them feel part of a bigger whole and by creating excitement with the use of unpredictable elements.
