32 Sounds

Sam Green
Presented in partnership with Texas Performing Arts

An immersive documentary and profound sensory experience that explores the elemental phenomenon of sound. From filmmaker Sam Green and featuring original music by JD Samson, 32 specific audio recordings are woven into a cinematic meditation on the power of sound to bend time, cross borders, and profoundly shape our perception of the world around us.

Critically acclaimed as an “audiovisual marvel,” the performance was shortlisted for a 2024 Academy Award and has received rave reviews from The New York TimesVarietyVox and others. The title is a nod to “32 Short Films About Glenn Gould” and presents a series of vignettes, each about a specific audio recording that hits an emotional, social, or conceptual note.

The film will be presented with live narration by Sam Green and with individual headphones for each audience member to fully experience the influence and impact of sound.

“Bursting with humor, emotion and curiosity, ’32 Sounds’ is a uniquely mind-expanding plunge into a dimension of the human experience so many of us take for granted, a rare and rewarding sonic journey with the potential to enrich our lives.” — Variety
