acousmatic journey through tracks in 22.2

"How, with words, realize the experience is every time for me listening to loud speakers sound? How about this curious combination of cinema and architecture, sculpture and poetry, I try, very concretely, to shape them? These invisible but tangible spaces where image and material clash and provide closed eyes and ears open?

I prefer to leave it to the floor projectors sounds, air vibrators, my acousmobiles ...

About thirty years that its high-speaking, who can only exist by its projection in the air through speakers, became my area of exploration and expression. It is the material that I architectures shapes, images of stories I tell.

In a closely intertwined with the completion of my work so I spent much of my time thinking about the place of space in conjunction with other criteria sounds, and explore techniques that allow me to deal with . I ended up making the tools I needed ( the AcousModules ), and more recently to gather my equipment Hawker sounds ( the AcousMobile ) now essential to give to hear my work. "
