o rocky voice

Sound installation

 

The audience is invited to experience the archeological exhibition of Dion - one of the most interesting archeological sites in Greece - through a recreation of its soundscape. The title 'O rocky voice' comes from a poem by the poet W. B. Yeats entitled 'Man and the Echo'. The poet enters into a dialogue with his own echo, asking it to rejoice, to travel together to an eternal place that is beyond meaning. 

 

Listening to the soundscape of the archeological site of Dion, while looking at the antiquities that have accompanied these sounds for thousands for centuries, we experience a personal voyage through time and space to our own Mount Olympus.
