Dutch artist Toine Horvers has mysteriously translated the ambient sounds in the magnificent cavernous spaces of the Chartres Cathedral in France. Hovers often works with drawings as well as spoken and written language to study sound. In Chartres: one hour of sound in a Gothic cathedral, he has exclusively used text and language to transcribe the sounds of the cathedral. Each page in this pocket-sized book represents one minute of sound, resulting in a collective tonal poem that examines the nature between languages, sound, writing and listening. Thanks to Onomatopee (Eindhoven).
