Ilyas, a young 23 year-old Afghan refugee, ex- plores his memories to answer the ques- tions: what is the most striking sonic memory he has of his country? And, which memory re- mains with him most strongly from his arrival in Belgium? Employing a documentary approach, HOW DOES IT SOUND explores sonic memo- ry through the theme of exile. Participation is a key element to this project in that it enables the migrant to recreate his/her sonic memories through simple means: the body, voice and objects.
