acousmatic journey through eavesdropping 22.2

"How, in words, to account for the experience that is every time to listen to me talking loud sounds? How about this curious film association and architecture, sculpture and poetry, I try, very concretely, to shape them? Of these invisible but tangible spaces, where image and matter clash and offer closed eyes and ears open?

I prefer to leave that voice to sound projectors, the air vibrating in my acousmobiles ...

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

In so closely intertwined with the realization of my works, I spent much of my time to reflect on the place of the 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 sound equipment peddler ( the AcousMobile ), now essential to intimate my job. "

Part 1h 03: naturalistic landscapes, scenography and documentary

Naturalist landscapes by Bernard Lagnel 3D sound, 5.1, 25 min

A series of enveloping soundscapes to discover is a kind of journey that inevitably affects us because it takes us back to the reality of soundscapes, between city and countryside, as if we were there.

Recording technique 5.0:

These sound recordings were recorded in multi channel from a Zoom H4n on four channels (XY Zoom 120 ° for LR and AB 2 Schoeps bent Mk4 for Ls-Rs). The creation of the central voice was performed by summing the left and right voice voice (-6 dB) thus producing a central convergence. The succession of these 18 sound paintings was achieved without mixing.

Sound Perception:

I worked on wrapping notions (uncorrelated signals) and immersion (correlation signal) in the horizontal plane and elevation (consistency of early reflections) in the vertical plane.

Biography

Entered in 1983 at Radio France as sound operator. Appointed in 1996 to engineer PTC (Production Technical Centre). Working specifically on sound fictions of France Culture and France Inter and France Musique music magazines. First recording experience in multi channel in 2002 on the occasion of the 5th International Forum of multi-channel sound at Radio France

The elementals, Sacha Séméria scenography and Aurélie Sivaciyan, 12 min

Awakening of matter - Site Couriot / Mining Museum

Adaptation 5.1 multichannel sound installation made on the occasion of the Biennale Internationale Design 2010 Saint Etienne.

The development of this project was born from a reflection on rereading Site Couriot by the sound design. It revolves around the changing industrial heritage, sitting on a symbolic territory, driven by the dynamics of the innovation capacity that builds on design.

Statement of intent:

This is a sound design that will resonate the material that makes up the site Couriot. Highlighting the occasion of the Design Biennial, the sleepy memory of nature (fossil sediment over 5 centuries), extends the living memory of the men who made this site a Mecca of Etienne heritage. It is this challenge that will echo the collective imagination thanks to its ability to cause strong images. Called Elementals, Earth, Metal, Fire, Wood, Water, are elemental forces of nature, which will be made visible (audible) by sound. The term "elemental" or "elementals" means the spirits of nature governing elements. They are the spiritual part of the earth, stones, rivers, oceans, or the wind, and as such, they run the natural phenomena related to the element or material they govern. These elementals are represented in many ways, they do not have their own shape, except that they assume in the collective imagination. Therefore identifies them as energetic phenomena that manifest and take form through our imagination. By working on the psycho-acoustic effects (cultural and sound images) the created sound material will help "give life" to gigantic creatures, from the materials that make up the site.

Implementation:

The "Hardware recipe" as a support installation has strong symbolic characteristics. It is located at ground level (link with the belly of the earth) and in alignment with the imposing headframe (aerial structure which reinforces the sensation of gravity). The tangle of stored materials, too imposing and seemingly abandoned, reinforces the impression of dormant entities that come to life. The arrival in this room is via the walkway along other impressive structures such as empty tanks (where the water is gone ...) and offers stunning views on the site and the headframe, before descending into the heart installation. Each Elemental will be a sound creation corresponding to its nature. The entities will be distributed in space and manifested regularly in turn. The architectural dimension and volume of the room (reinforced by a play of shadows and lights) will be exploited and put forward to increase the impression of gigantic creatures that inhabit the site. All these elements come to serve the real phantasmagoria of sensation felt by the visitor who will stroll in this place.

Feature: a multichannel sound system, with several speakers, subwoofers, electromechanical transducers infrasound, all powered by DVD players and amplifiers.

Installation time: 11th St Etienne Design Biennial 2010.
