The contribution consists of a nine-minute video Room and a text entitled ’What Does Silence Sound Like?’ The video records changes that take place in a bedroom after the occupant’s death. The text describes the making of the video soundtrack, focusing on the question of how to render auditive the silence of an emptying room. The text is mostly in the form of a dialogue, and it is based on taped conversations between Saloranta and sound designer Tatu Virtamo.
