The Sound of Reading

In collaboration with Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival
Sharjah, United Emirates – April 2019 

In absolute silence, when the reader’s mind creates its own images, sounds, and imaginative landscapes, there is one sound that remains the same: The sound of the pages turning. What a magnificent experience reading is! ‘The sound of reading’ is a workshop focusing on the experience of reading and its acoustic extensions. The participants are encouraged to use their five senses to explore the what makes books special. They guide themselves in Sharjah’s book fair, experiment with our technical equipment, and at the end of the workshop, create their own, unique sound-maps of the festival!
