Le son de la Guerre

 • 2018

Au travers des différentes commémorations internationales, la première guerre mondiale est sous les projecteurs depuis l’année 2014. Pourtant cette grande guerre n’est pas seulement un moment historique que l’on commémore au gré des décennies anniversaires mais bien un événement crucial qui a changé notre rapport au territoire, à la nature et au monde. >>>

Since 2014, I have been using two setups I developed while working closely with the CNCM-gnem (National Center for Musical Creation) : Idiosyncrasie and Blank Memory. They’re made up of one touch screen tablet and one laptop. The first one was conceived as an enhanced version of the 3Kpad ∞, which I put together in 2000.
Idiosyncrasie uses sound sources that come from the real world in real time from feeds available on the Internet. Much of these sound sources are available for free through an online platform entitled soundmap, which was conceived as a research project at Locus Sonus, an audio arts lab in Aix-en-Provence, France.
Initially, the kind of musique concrète I did developed sound materials recorded on different media (magnetic tapes, vinyl, CDs, music files, etc.). The re-use of these sound materials was pushed all the way to entropy. This approach stemmed from a desire to use the medium to its fullest potential.
My relation to randomness originated with my... more

Erikm & les Percussions de Strasbourg

Throughout the ages and their various uses, survival tools (rhombus wind instruments, flute-calls, etc.) have become musical instruments. In the context of this work, these vectors of affects co-exist side-by-side with an electro-acoustic system.

 This machine cannibalizes its own sound production while simultaneously thriving on sounds produced by the musicians. 
From this agora spring forth "multitimbral" landscapes whose edges dissolve into microtonal steppes, devoid of human action.

From liminal pulsation to decimal infinity, the physicality of the sound summons an allegory to geology, from the infra thin (l’émoi - volute) to the supra massive (embâcle - doline).

 Drum-Machines consists of subconscious and collective archaic fields
that reach all the way to the noise aberration of the contemporary world. The 21st century begins in its great collapse, the imbalances and the disruptions of the sound masses deployed by organisms in movement (percussionists) compress time and sounds until their paroxysms.

This work is the elaboration of a lengthy sifting approach in which process creates form through a dynamic composition. This process uses accumulation, manipulation and re-arrangement across several generations of sound data. The original intention is modified and transformed.

Drum-Machines is polymorphic in it’s arrangement, suspended on a line of time and actions.

From a hummingbird flapping its wings

To the hiss of a primitive wind instrument saturating the air with liminal insects

Is born an iterative dance of water drops.
A rhythmicon charming the pulsations of a proletarianized timpanist

builds its beat into a monumental syncline where its peak reaches zero degree.

There are a lot of photos and film footage left over from World War I. In terms of sound, though, there is only one film that recorded a measure of the sound vibrations on Armistice Day. That representation of sound shows all the magnitude of the sound of the artillery on the Western Front in Moselle. It preserves the sound of one minute before and one minute after the Armistice on November 11, 1918. The first minute still reflects the clamor of weapons tearing through the soil, to be replaced at 11 o’clock sharp by a flatline : "the silence." >>>
