The Soundwalk Collective's The Encounter features recordings from the Schwarzwald, Germany in 2010. In 1967, Paul Celan visited Martin Heidegger in Todtnauberg, located in the Black Forest where the philosopher worked. The subsequent poem written from this meeting, "Todtnauberg", became an intellectual milestone of post-war Europe. Jean Luc Nancy thinks about this meeting, but instead of looking for conclusions, he leaves his mind free to think, free to answer, free to be lost maybe. It is not only a speech but also a voice of restless resonance.
