These images are part of a project. People listened different kind of music (the same for all) and I was interested in their reaction when they listened to the sound. Everybody had (and normally has) a different reaction listening a song that he knows or not, that he likes or not. A song can make you smile or cry, can let you indifferent or make you a face. In this project I captured all these expressions. In these images people was listening to few seconds of the refrain of "Figaro" from the liric "Il Barbiere di Siviglia" of G.Puccini. You know "Figaro, Figaro Figaro Figaro Fiiiiiiiiigaro"?
