sonocity I | the particle dance | France 2oo5

“This morning I went to see the place where the garbage collectors dump their rubbish. Great Scott, it’s beautiful!” Jacques Villeglé.

This Sound Track project involved fourteen people: seven twosomes of sound and visual artists to depict a sound city. Each one had to come up with, and make basic equipment available for all the others. Each twosome then had to incorporate at least one element in its own production. Each one of the artists was recruited from very different aesthetic worlds. Malte Martin and Marie-Hélène Fournier were associated in this new project, initiated by Patricia Dallio and her company, Sound Track.

“The city as living organism produced unexpected beautiful things, as here the particle 
dance at the end of the market. Exchanges, juxtapositions, discrepancies… runway strips release us from reality, but don’t disconnect us from it, for all that…” This is a good enough description of the images associated with the musical composition. In fact, Malte and Marie-Hélène produced two films and two pieces of music. Visitors were able to play them in the original order, or mix them.

mots voyageurs #2

Pour ce projet, initié par Malte Martin, chaque jour du mois de septembre, deux mots seront affichés avec une présentation étymologique pour retracer leur voyage avant d’arriver dans la langue française.

Pour cette installation, qui célèbre ainsi le métissage de la langue commune, nous avons eu le plaisir de recevoir des créations de graphistes et de typographes du monde entier.
