Can we write everything we hear down on a piece of paper? Or can we hear anything that is described in writing? A telephone answering machine is activated and all the messages it contains are played. But we do not hear family members talking about the Sunday dinner or an agitated neighbour complaining – instead we hear the sounds of 12 different birds and see a hand trying to find signs, symbols, letters to contain what has been uttered. As we move along, the symbols start to dance and start living a life of their own, dancing across the screen and becoming the language of far more than just the sounds of birds.
