Notes via a soundscape of Bollywood (2013)
Soundinstallation (Work comissioned by HeK for URBAN SOUNDS)

Gilles Aubry’s works are established sound studies that are often connected to the politics of the aural. In Notes via a soundscape of Bollywood Aubry explores the socio-cultural city space Mahada in India in the background of the booming film industry of Bollywood. His observer position is reflected through the text adaption of Pasolini’s film essay Notes towards a film about India (1969), presented as «movie without pictures» – as soundtrack with text projection.
