"You are walking in a forest. You decided to take this walk to get away from the city, the noise; the people. You wanted to be alone and here you are."
45 Beats’ text will be delivered through headphones by an anonymous voice, leading the listener through an unnamed woods, where the listener falls through leaves and is taken through several narrated sensorial worlds. There will also be a series of prompts that the narrator gives the participants that began with simply asking them to say their name out loud and then escalated to the voice commanding them to yell at the top of their lungs until they can’t breathe, pushing the conflict between reality and fiction.
