Tell Tale Heart
(binaural)

SYNOPSIS

Work based on the story of Edgar Allan Poe, the Tell-Tale Heart, tells the story of Alberto, a nurse in charge of retired Colonel Mantilla. Their relationship is good, but Alberto has an obsession and he cannot bear the glass eye that the colonel wears. This situation highlights his mental disorder, a situation that will lead him to commit atrocities. This sinister character after dealing with the police is left for the rest of his life in the darkness of the Colonel's house.

 

The work proposes a different dialogue regarding the exploration of sound and non-vision or blindness, territories feared and little known by most people. This with the aim of innovating, in a world of virtuality, immediacy and visual exposure. The project is committed to new formats to encourage the senses and personal imagination, canceling the view and exploring with binaural sound (immersive audio through headphones that allows you to feel part of the work and at the same time perceive the movement of the characters around) , this as a strategy so that each listener feels in the center of the action.


The darkness generates a direct channel to connect you with the senses, puts on alert and activates sensors that in everyday life we normally use without realizing it, it affects the structure of each person with whom we share, creating individual and collective consciousness, and in this way we go beyond history.


It is a novel, multiple and comprehensive trip, for those who dare and immerse themselves in the experience. It allows consciousness and imagination to handle and use the senses as a parallel language, as a form of collective transportation towards the universe of history in time and space. In addition, it reflects on the mental condition of a character who goes crazy and in turn puts mental health on the scene, another territory little known and stigmatized by society.

VIRTUAL BLINDED THEATER

It is a new format that we are exploring based on our experience of the "Blind Theater" adapting the works to a holophonic (binaural) recording to be heard blindly and with headphones, achieving a much more intense immersive experience making you feel like you are in the middle of the staging.

The darkness generates a direct channel to connect you with your senses, it puts on alert and activates sensors that in everyday life we   normally use without realizing it. It affects the structure of each person with whom we share this, creating individual and collective consciousness, generating something beyond history to happen.

It is a novel, multiple and comprehensive trip, for those who dare and immerse themselves in the experience. It allows the consciousness, handling and use of the senses as parallel language to be a form of collective transportation towards the universe of history in time and space.
