Silent Zone – Echo Chamber is a hybrid between an opera, interactive 3D technology and installation art. The experience lasts for less than 10 minutes and can only be viewed one person at a time. The work, which revolves around an incestuous family, is an excerpt from the delicate and award-winning chamber opera Silent Zone from 2017. The installation invites the audience inside an abstraction of a home, where the reality of non-disclosure prevails.

The audience is provided with a smartphone and a pair of headphones, after which they enter into the installation – a cube the size of 9 x 5 metres. Here, the opera unfolds as a physical and sculptural soundscape for the audience to walk in to. At the same time, a family of four is observed through the phone in changing situations, and gradually a narrative emerges. You can move around freely, get close to the characters, or observe them at a distance.
