Since time immemorial, mountains have been regarded as sacred sites across different cultures and they have inspired a wealth of myths, rituals, and religions. In Can Sound be Currency?, the mountainous landscape of the Sichuan province resonates with sounds of diverse origin and nature: atmospheric and animal, human and artificial.

The film’s sonic landscape is composed to evoke the complex entanglement between humans and nature, the cosmological views and linguistic diversity of indigenous communities, and the evolving ways in which sounds express spiritual significance and shape interspecies relations. Set in a territory rich with ethnic minorities, the work also addresses the changes and losses endured by local communities in the face of fast-paced economic development.
