outdoor listening session

The audience is seated, gathered in front of several speakers
and facing or in a landscape. The listening is stereo, distracted
or focused, environmental and narrative and based on the contemplation and the immersion in the place. 
The voices, the sound and musical elements, the silences, maintain a relationship of rupture, dialogue and coincidence with the sounds naturally or accidentally produced by the place and
the distance.
Several spoken, musical and landscape sound pieces following each other up give rise to a long open and fragmented story.

from indoors

The session can also take place indoors, facing a cityscape or landscape, with privileged views of the distance, the sea, the mountains or the city.

version with 16 speakers and 6 listening situations

Partly live (improvised mixing from a central point at certain times) and partly fixed, this sound action in the landscape uses a set of 10 speakers on pedestal, distributed by 2 or by 4 according to different points of view, and offers several listening situations: individual or collective, mobile or fixed, sitting on benches, deckchairs or cushions, in fee, short or long durations.
