HISS is a poetic work and in its core lies our relationship to nature. The work is grounded in the fields of acoustic ecology and listening practices and pays attention to surrounding soundscapes. HISS is an inquiry of the North Bohemian region in the Czech Republic, an area marked with the heavy coal mining industry (surface mining of brown coal) for over two centuries. There are major devastations and changes in the relief of the landscape - considering that some of the industries are still up and running, while others are closing down and in the process of the land-recovery. There is a number of villages and rivers that were physically moved and removed in favor of the economical growth.
