Deep in the heart of the Amazon, Tauary inhabitants invite us to listen to the sounds of the jungle, the birds, and animals.However, some weird sounds appear: a creature prowling around the trees. Some of them have heard her, very few have ever seen her, and those who did find her never came back. She charms, she enchants — she leads people to get lost: each of one of them tells a story in their own way and tries to decipher her sounds.
Félix Blume (France, 1984) is a sound artist and sound engineer. His sound pieces have been broadcasted in radios from all over the world and also in different places such as Centre Pompidou and Musée d'Orsay (France).
