The work is composed of site-specific series of stories, compositions and sound design works that have been composed specifically for certain locations and it was produced with the help from the communities around the route itself in a multilingual environment.
Les Chuchotants has encouraged families and locals to go out and explore more the surrounding natural resources in a period where all the cultural venues were closed due to Covid-19 pandemic. The project covers a very wide area and is a permanent feature of the park, therefore visitors have time to explore the sound map in different periods of the year and find all the different sonic locations.
