Altered states of objects

The project speaks about the altered states of human beings. States when we don’t see things through our everyday eyes, when something is changing, when we get a look at what is behind reality or behind the reality that we are supposed to perceive in a normal state in our society. This kind of reality is the tip of a big iceberg. There could be more beneath, it could be bigger and this is the exploration of what there is behind belief, what there is behind dreams, what there is behind an idea, what there is behind a human. The unconsciousness of things.

This is an orchestra where each object connected to a transducer becomes a loudspeaker, each of which has its own sound identity, its unique voice.
In reality the object becomes more than a loudspeaker, it becomes an instrument into itself and not just an instrument of reproduction.
 An attempt to revisit the aural component of different materials; suspending objects in a state between a diffuser and a sound source in itself.

A sound field (like a forest or a city) where disparate sound are regrouped into one aural frame.

The “objet sonore” is not to mistake with the “corps sonore”, where a sound fact (fait sonore) provide a considerable sound diversity and alters the identity of the objects itself. The border between the sound fact (reality) and psychogeniques sound of dreams and hallucinations is suspended and blurred. Link to video
