Inaudible by Dries Depoorter

Inaudible shows a number of people I met on the street, listening to an MP3 player. After asking what music they were listening to, a portrait of that person was taken.
Listening to music, whether this is classical, pop, techno or hardcore, makes people experience the city in another way. The music creates another world. Other passengers along the sidewalk have no idea which world you are walking through and how the city is modificated by the kind of music you are listening to. “Inaudible” is curious about these worlds, and raises the question if they fit with the prejudices we all have while crossing that person on the sidewalk.
