About the episode

There’s a legend that says that, for one moment every day, the world goes silent, all at the same time. When she was a little girl, audio producer Isabel Cadenas Cañón would stand quiet, still, and try to grasp that world-silence moment. She never got to listen to it, but she’s been trying ever since. When Madrid went into lockdown, she placed her recorder at her balcony every day. With those sounds, she crafts an audio essay of the state of emergency in Spain order to explore why we hear what we hear, and how what is apparently silent is determined by the relationship between sound and power.
