Explore this incredible work, created exclusively in digital format. An interactive song cycle inspired by the theme of ‘infinity’ in Jorge Luis Borges’ stories, The Book of Sand invites viewers to create their own path by switching between storytelling layers in a complex work of infinite beauty.

Composed by Michel van der Aa as three parallel layers of music and film, with the enigmatic title role performed by singer-songwriter Kate Miller-Heidke, viewers can freely move between three worlds – stone galleries, a cellar and a desolate desert – as the music shifts seamlessly from abstract electronic to alt-pop, then a cappella with the Nederlands Kamerkoor. The Book of Sand can be accessed online now.
