Like someone who loses their sense of sight or hearing, whose other senses get more sensitive to make up for the gap, a video missing the elements of audio can still be effective, as long as the other elements are stronger.
This is especially effective when the missing piece adds a level of disorientation–a symptom often associated with travel. In this case, the extremely progressive music adds to the feeling of being on unfamiliar ground. With a few exceptions, I have no idea where each of the clips was taken, but it doesn’t matter. I’m seeing the places in a very immediate way. I am not distracted by a narrator. I am simply living the experience of travel with the ghostlike woman who appears and disappears on a whim.
