As part of Never Complain, Never Explain

How do we define ourselves to others? Does our existence have meaning if others aren’t aware of it? A man struggles to make himself heard. All he wants is to exist. Prevented by unforeseen events, he tries to tame the feedback from his microphone to assert himself, to speak in public. Through ingenious technical processes, the character plays with sound when sound is not playing with him. By blending sound composition and burlesque performance, Bru(i)t trumpets the urgency of making oneself heard in a society where the cult of individual success is deafening.
