The Sound of Silence

A successful “house tuner” in New York City calibrates the sound in people’s homes in order to adjust their moods. This unique form of therapy is one of his own making, and he is convinced that private homes and even whole cities can be finely tuned to the point of harmonic perfection. But his grand vision is challenged when he meets a client who do not respond to his methods, and soon his research is threatened by large commercial forces, his academic peers and a new, beautiful acquaintance.

This quirky, quiet romance draws associations to Spike Jonze’s Her, contemplating on a similar theme; emotional dissonance in the modern world. The story is developed from the award-winning short Palimpsest, and the excellent cast include Peter Sarsgaard and Rashida Jones in the lead roles.
