Júlia Mihályfy – project manager
I believe that all types of art are forms that allow us to express our inner self, they are a way of sharing how we experience the world. It is the communication of intimate concepts that cannot be faithfully portrayed by words alone. Music is a universal language that allows us to connect with each other in an even deeper way. With music, we can communicate across cultural and linguistic boundaries and be one. Through PP Sound pillar projects we can contribute to this matter and together achieve this goal, and I am glad to be part of this process.

Content of the shared words can be transferred to music in the form of a mobile installation set up in four countries settlements.
