A Canopy of Accidents
Transposition and live version (2010) for Optical sound order.
A Canopy of Accidents An acousmatic piece created for the outdoor, February 3, 2010. Commissioned as part of the project Sirènes et midi net (Sirens and noon on the dot) in Marseille. The sirens as sound objects and broadcasting tools.
Initially composed for a public area.
The online version is a sound imprint of the original acoustic projection.
The idea of transposing this sound piece to a home listening environment, by streaming and in relation to a webcam image, activates several different senses.
A temporal and symbolic crease between the memory of a work created for the outdoor, reactivated through a subjective image of reality.
This is still a sound piece connected to a public space outdoors, but its status is dematerialized through the filter of the Internet.
A Canopy of Accidents echoes the propagation of a sound and a specific sequence, which can be heard across an entire area at a time T.
An acousmatic web that brings back to mind the actual principle of the Web.(1)
The connection between the original accident (2) is intrinsically linked to the paradigm shift in this work, in an increasingly active political context,
ranging from discipline to control (3), the eye of the webcam.
A suspension, a snag the heartbreak of our great collapse the monthly truncations, preliminary to the disaster collective revelations of an incident to the accident, these 4,500 siren horns tear the acoustic and temporal landscapes of distant sound.
