Music and narrative.
Sala’s oeuvre explores the relationships between music and narrative. Architecture and film, interleaving qualities of different media in both complex and intuitive ways to produce works in which one medium takes on the qualities of another. His practice encompasses sound and video installation, film, sculpture. Photographs, drawings, books.
