Absence is an autobiographical sound piece, a reflection on the recorded past and my relationship with my parents, while one of them is away from home. A starting point in a discussion about the choices that we make when we decide what moments we want to keep for the future.
Piece created for the sound writing workshop directed by Charo Calvo organized within HER VOICE project, September 2017.
