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. "

Part 1 hour 03: naturalistic landscapes, set design, and documentation

Naturalistic landscapes in 3D sound by Bernard Lagnel, 5.1, 25 min

A series of enveloping soundscapes 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 summation of the left and the right voice vote (-6 dB) 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.


Entered in 1983 at Radio France as an operator of sound. Appointed in 1996 engineer at PTC (Production Technical Centre). Working specifically on sound fictions 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

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 International Design Biennial 2010 Saint Etienne.

The development of this project came from a reflection on the 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. This is the echo that will challenge 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. Thus identifying them as energetic phenomena that manifest and take form through our imagination. Working on the psychoacoustic effects (cultural and sound images) the created sound material will allow to "give life" to gigantic creatures, from the materials that make up the site.


"Hardware recipe" for support of the installation has strong symbolic features. It is located at ground level (link to the belly of the earth) and at the base of the imposing headframe (aerial structure which enhances 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 a breathtaking view on the site and the headframe, before descending into the heart installation. Each Elemental will be a sound creation corresponding to its nature. 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 operated and promoted 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 will walk 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.


Sacha Séméria: sound designer, sound engineer, 5.1 output, audio consulting

Born in 1972, he lives and works today in Saint-Etienne.

Sound write to the diffusion of sound, Sacha Séméria is Sound Designer, engineer, and audio consultant. He works and sculpts the sound for more than ten years at the cross road of technical and artistic and it also claims to be someone "research" of emotion he can raise through its and music.

Advertising production to Davout studios through large-scale projects as the realization of Sound Design Concert Jean Michel Jarre in Egypt for the transition to the year 2000, or that of Prince and Princess animated film Michel Ocelot, he has to his credit many short films, sound creations of event, music and various artistic collaborations.

Aurélie Sivaciyan : architecte musicienne

Aurélie Sivaciyan, architecte et musicienne de 27 ans, utilise le son comme matériau de création et s'intéresse aux différentes formes qu'il peut prendre dans l'espace. Diplômée en 2006 de l'Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de St Etienne ainsi que du Conservatoire National Régional de St Etienne, elle tend au travers de ces diverses créations, à rendre l'espace lisible par le son.

Sa démarche intervient à plusieurs échelles. Auteur, compositeur, interprète, elle investit l'espace dans lequel elle utilise son corps et sa voix comme émetteur-récepteur, mais elle s'intéresse aussi au paysage sonore et à l'aspect « extra-ordinaire » des architectures dans lesquelles elle intervient (Eglise St Pierre de Firminy, Puits Couriot/musée de la mine…), utilisant le son et la matière comme support.

Documentaire CREADOC, 4.0, 26 min

« A chacun ses cages », réalisation et prise de son Benoît Maire, assistance technique et mixage Thierry Dilger

A chacun ses cages est un documentaire qui tente de s'approcher des grands singes à travers deux soigneurs animaliers qui vivent auprès d'eux depuis des années. Loin des clichés fomentés par nos imaginaires, leurs cages n'en sont que le propre miroir de notre regard et de nos perceptions. Gorilles, chimpanzés, Bonobos ne seraient-ils pas qu'une altérité humaine qui nous permettrait de mieux nous définir en tant qu' Homme et les apprécier autrement que comme des bêtes?

Benoît Maire est aujourd'hui étudiant au Créadoc à Angoulême. Après des études d'ethnologie à l'université de Lyon 2, il part vivre en Irlande pour étudier la musique folklorique et la culture gaélique. Il étudie aussi le cinéma d'animation et tente aujourd'hui de trouver des voix entre documentaire et animation.

Thierry Dilger est ingénieur du son et travail étroitement avec les étudiants de deux formations à Angoulême : le Créadoc (Master documentaire de création) et l'ENJMIN (Ecole Nationale de Jeux Vidéos et Médias Interactifs Numériques).
