‘This morning I found my ears again. I had left them in a drawer, near a clock with a never-ending double swinging clinking pendulum, almost like an anxious metronome. It took me a long time to get used to them as I hadn't used them for a while.

First the right : cracks of the wooden floor, sharp and dry, a breath through the keyhole like the whispers of forgotten ghosts. The walls vibrate and a comfortable bass spreads and embraces my whole body.

Then the left : the window, the outside, the wind beating against the glass in a swinging tempo. The branches dance and imitate the sound of an infinite mass of seeds poured in the air. An engine splits the street with the roaring of a big animal.

All of those sounds compose a hypnotic symphony which lulls me. I close my eyes and let the sound penetrate. Ears, I will never forget you again.’
