The Quiet Volume

Slip on the headphones and immerse yourself in this live literary experience for two. The Quiet Volume exploits the particular tension common to any library worldwide; the interplay of silence and intense concentration, within which our experience of reading unfolds. Taking cues from words both written and whispered you'll find yourself burrowing an unlikely path through a pile of books. The words on the page, the voice in your ear and occasionally the companion at your table will guide you through a journey that will shake up your understanding of the act of reading.
