acousmatic journey through tapping into 22.2

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

I prefer to let it speak for projectors sounds, air vibrators, my acousmobiles ...

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

In a closely integrated with the implementation of my work, I spent much of my time to think about the role 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 sound hawker equipment ( the AcousMobile ), now essential to intimate my work. "
