The creations

Marche Sonore [EAU] #1

in Faux–la-Montagne

The aim of this walk is to illustrate a succession of different ways of approaching water. Yesterday, millers, craftsmen and farmers were concerned as to how water ran through their land and how to share it. Nowadays, water is under the protection of scientific officials, ethnologists, and researchers. This transformation generates frustration and misunderstanding, or respect and listening.

Marche Sonore [EAU] #2

Nemini Parco in Felletin

Water is at the heart of spiritual practices, and is particularly revealing of a need to give body to the irrational. Votive practices, rituals, acts of penitence around the Bonnes Fontaines of the Limousin reveal ongoing practices : does suffering enable us to survive?
A walking experience

The Marches Sonores

The Marches Sonores (Sound Walks) are hybrid projects, somewhere between graphic, sound and documentary creations, giving a reading of a territory through its inhabitants, through soundscape and human ecology.

Each participant is invited to follow a route with the help of an MP3 walkman and a map specially designed for each project. The encounters, organised as surveys, are cast in the form of interviews; The Walks lead from one point to another and from one person to another.

They last approximatively 3 hours, including 1h20 of listening to sound creations and interviews.

The Marches Sonores (Sound Walks) can be performed at any time of the year in the vicinity of Paris, Limoges, Aubusson, Mulhouse.


How to?

These Marches Sonores are available only in French. Anyway, if you want to experience it, simply go to information office and ask for an MP3 player, buy the CD & Map and go a walk.
