Whispers to the Stars is a sound work composed by messages of anonymous people from over the world, confessing unspoken words and giving a sense of closure on those misdirections and miscommunications. While each of these messages is played, an offering is made, a ritual burning that turn them into dust and release them to the sky to shine. 

Concept, Artistic Direction and Performance: Jean-Baptiste Phou
Sound Design: Vincent Villa
With the Support of Institut français du Cambodge and Kongchak Studio
