about the cassette

“The idea behind this project is to go against the accepted principle of exoticism, and the envy that this notion creates in many aspects, particularly in terms of sonic research. Therefore, I decided to concentrate on the sounds that surround me, that I live with, that I know, that I can name, and which ultimately have their share of exoticism if we give them enough time to express themselves. No long journeys, no encounters with the unknown though... unless!


Living on the banks of the Loire river, which I regularly draw sounds and inspiration from in my musical work, I wanted to make a piece with the bio- and geophony of its meanders. I started recording as regularly as possible in a restricted perimeter, in places where I like to walk, close to my home. A radius of no more than 2km around my house and the life it fosters is thus explored here, with a focus on the river’s banks."
