Juan Cabral, the commercial maker behind the Sony Bravia bouncing ball ad
has completed a new piece: this time, he and collaborators, including Múm, Richard Fearless (of Death In Vegas) and the people behind Sigur Rós' live concerts, transformed
the Icelandic town of Sey∂isfjör∂ur
into an ambient sound installation, placing speakers throughout the town, playing music (from folk to electronica to ambient orchestral) and filming the reactions of the locals as they went about their lives.
The resulting short film, Soundville, is ostensibly an advertisement for Sony's audio products, but can stand on its own as an art installation.
