Dehors is a shorter version with headphones of the outdoor installation Exhalaisons.
It’s an environmental work, without words, for a free and itinerant listening while walking in a city, a park or by a lakeshore.
The headphones used are said « open »: they don’t isolate us from our environment but let exist the external sounds, perceptible as sub-layers or punctuations, breaking or in dialogue with the half-full and half-empty composition.
