Rather than a catalogue or artist’s book, this publication is conceived as a hybrid project, a collection of documents relating to the sound pieces made by Dominique Petitgand since 1992. It comprises a broad selection of these works, as transcribed by the artist, structured around two long interviews, together with “listener’s notes” by critics and other artists.
Its aim is to open up the body of work and to examine the different ways in which it can be represented, documented and transcribed.
