« Passeur d’eau »

Le Chant du bollard (nouvelle version 2018)
A bollard is a vertical sliding system to which boats tie up in locks ; it emits discontinuous random sounds during the whole time the water is falling in the lock, and there are about a dozen that “sing” in this way in this gigantic sonorous cathedral.  This, therefore, is water heard from a boat passing through one of the immense locks on the Rhône, where everything is amplified and takes on a grandiose fullness. 

La cicatrice d’Ulysse (2006)
This title, borrowed from Erich Auerbach, German writer and critic deceased in 1957, immediately sets the scene on a plane where realism is depicted in the aesthetics of Western music. Electro-acoustic music has the ability, using “concrete” sounds (with all the ambiguity implied by the word), of giving us an immediate sensation of reality, which we can all situate in relation to our references and private objects of reference; these are the profound notions of sublimitas and humilitas, which merge and unite in musical expression.

« Tentatives en étoile »

Grand voile dans le temps (2015)
Rather than the timbre or the identification of the sound, I wanted in this study, to play on the variations of signal intensities. It is the sound movement that carries meaning ; it shows drama. It is not playing with duration (which is specific to music) but with movement in time … It is the correspondent of the gesture in plastic art …
The sound materials float and shake in time ; like sails in the breeze.

Study on  » Other-Music « . Fighting landscapes !

Un seul et les autres (2016)
Short study on a rather pathetic theme : loneliness in society.
It is one more step on the path of my old research on possible aesthetics, born out of a sound construction specific to the specific possibilities of electro-acoustics, which is closer to the plastic arts than to music. The sounds here are not sound objects, melodic or rhythmic motifs, but more or less identifiable dramatic presences that invent virtual and fleeting universes at the heart of the imagination of a listener who accepts adventure !

« PAS » Parcours Audio Sensibles, ici et là

These four pieces are derived from some of my sound walks with I have done for the past several years. I ausculated most of these places and then recorded the sound. That said, like any soundscapes these pieces are not necessarily faithful acoustic mirrors. They are rather the « vision » of the places, their spirits and the sensory perceptions, that are entirely personal sensations.

Air Creatures

Gravité (2016-2017)
This piece explores different figurations of attraction, that of bodies in relation to each other, objects and forces. It also imagines these attractions as deformations of mutations, passages from one figure to another. It uses a material composed of different sound synthesis devices as well as urban field recordings from which street voices emerge.  This version is conceived in the thought of the body in motion: a body that thinks and expresses itself through gesture, that sketches signs and words as it attracts into a vortex of energy and matter : that of Gravity.

Soma (2011)
The piece is entirely built on electronic sounds exploring dynamic spectral filtering of waveforms as well as physical string models. Conceived more as an immersion than a discourse or a narrative with its development, Soma is a call to half consciousness, to motionless movement in aerial and receding architectures: stone landscape with asperities populated by infinitesimal events.

Longue distance (2017)
This acousmatic piece evokes wide perspectives ; those that let glimpse and imagine the very far of the landscape. The progressive mutations of the electronic sounds and the fog of the effects, which surround the piano, indicate an itinerary which is prolonged and whose long distance leads to an attitude of floating daydream.

« Fait couler le rocher … »

Charles Baudelaire > Bohémiens en voyage

Dans les jardins de Cybèle (2013)
A walk, on a summer’s day, in the late afternoon, through the remains of a Gallo-Roman town, the gardens of Cybele … diffuse impressions, a place both sacred and a sanctuary … but also the aura of the nearby town. A special place, allegory of the spiritual and of materialism, duality between spirit and motion.

Ellipsis (2005)
Ellipse is a scientific word and ellipsis, the literary word, each with its own special meaning. Ellipse is used in geometry, astronomy and colorimetry, and ellipsis is a term used in literature, poetry and rhetoric; the word itself is a metaphor; in another of its singularities, in geometry, it is a fixed and finite shape.
