Her work oscillates between acousmatic composition for multi-channel sound systems, live performance and installation with a focus on imaginary soundscapes and sonic narratives. She collects field recordings, combines them with electronics, and explores the grey zones in between. She creates pieces for instruments and live-electronics based on graphical notation together with music ensembles, and collaborates regularly with artists of other fields, at the crossroad to literature, video and radio art.
Film: The window of dreams, By Cendrine Robelin (FR)
Documentary. with English subtitles, 58 min
This film reveled an initiatory journey to the land of concrete music, with foremost pioneers Bernard Parmegiani and Lionel Marchetti. It’s a process of encounters and transmissions between the generations of analog and virtual. The film arouse the possibility of appropriating quotidian voices, ‘dirty’ sound sources by recording them. It’s about a strong dedication to the power of transforming our perception of sounds, simply by the aesthetic experience of listening.
The director will be present for a short introduction, and questions-answers in the bar in-between the sets.
