The three works in the exhibition had a wonderful physicality and two employed found objects to add a deep texture/patina to the sonic content.
The works were:
“Bien des choses”, an array of sonic postcards by Cléa Coudsi & Eric Herbin. Voices spoke in French (presumably linked to the outward facing text of the postcard) from individual speakers behind beautifully hinged postcards, so the photos were revealed with the personal voices.
“stream Fiction”, by Nicolas Bralet is an old wooden roll-top desk that accessed global streaming live field recordings via the Locus Sonus SoundMap project. Toggle switches flicked streams on and off and I think a push-button allowed you to send the local sound down another tube into an online-accessible stream.
“des oreilles pour voir”, a carpeted walkway that triggered an array of atmospheric sounds delivered to the listener via wireless headphones, by Stéphane Kozik.
