Collective of musicians and composers living in Paris. Acousmatic art 
and contemporary music. Open to multidisciplinary activities and non 
conventional concerts. Our objectif : a research of news way to involve 
public and artistes. Our principe : generate a deeply relations between 
body, thoughts and spirit from sounds activities. Our dogma : Art is not 
an discipline, is a way to percept and to enlarged our conscience of 

Oliver Rappoport - Identités

The title inspires in the different faces that the individual has had 
through all his existence. Going to the expansion or the personal 
deterioration. For this reason one can notice that there are not a great 
climatic moment but several parts and coats rescheduled to places that 
are not clearly definite. But all this succeeds with a great discursive 
coherence, a great work of orchestration and a linking sound in constant 

Adolfo Kaplan - La Sombra del Sonido

Around each complex sound, one will have sounds whose complexity dépends 
on the wealth of harmonic of the generating sounds, the sound, the sound 
has a shade. The pièce « la sombra del sonido » is composed by a series 
of experiments, that mix résonant sound bodies and various résonances of 
synthesis. The used of several types of synthesis allowed me to show the 
similarities betxeen acoustic and electronic sources. In some cases 
givin importance to the natural aspects of the sound évents (especially 
by the control of vibrato and tremolo velocities), and by the combines 
processes used in instrumental whriting and concrete music opérations.

Joan Bagés i Rubi - Deux Poissons Japonais Electroniques

A work that delas with de fluid. An interpersonal landscape where any 
action is trnasformed into an enregizing torrent. The landscape of small 
surrealist aquarium where acoustic and electronic sounds live together 
is a metaphor to adress the decanting of enregy, addictions, 
relations... The work's original sounds arise from guitar, electronic, 
and eprcussion sounds. The main processing realised was harmonization 
and texturazation of sounds with Reaktor to create fluid sequences that 
are related to each others. At the same time, a MAX/MSP patch controled 
by Bagés allowed him load the GRM-Tools and to work on sounds with a 
MIDI controller-Keyboard to be able to articulate sounds and print a 
certain level of movement on them. This work was composed thanks to the 
2007 Generalitat de Catalunya Scholarship.

Pablo Fredes - Sonatisse

Beads made in 2004.This piece belongs of a trilogy of pieces that 
contrasts and complements trying to build in various types of sources: 
from the anecdotal to electronics, from the electronic to the natural, 
since as to what award-acousmatic, etc.This especially is a tonal 
(tímbrica) structure of electronic sounds with some inserts and inlays 
of natural sounds perfectly award-ear. A compositional level verticalize 
ago trying different durations and evolution of sound layers, all at 
different times of the general time of the piece: something I call 
"temporal fractal figures."

Hubert Michel - Salle de bain

«Salle de bain mean Bathroom» in English. This music is a part of a 
sound fresco call "appartement " (flat). Originally, it' a study for the 
choreographic company "Etant donné" (Rouen-France). The aquatic subjects 
were principally treated on rhythmic point of view. The length of Salle 
de bain is about the same time you have a shower. The mean idea is to 
listen to freshness you fell when you wash your body.

Mirtru Escalona Mijares - Sur le Chemin de la Brume. Cotidiana # 1 - 
Dedicated to Christine Groult

The piece owes its name to a study on intuition in musical form. That is 
to say, that I have decided to beguin without any pre-established form 
and to craft and imagine as I composed the work. Leaving, in this way, 
the most important place to intuition without losing from sight the aim 
of a coherent form.This piece belongs to a cycle of works which I set 
out from material form our daily environnement used as a poetical source 
by means of electroacoustic and concrete tools. The principal source of 
sound for this piece are the sounds produced by a washing machine. "Sur 
le Chemin de la Brume" released in Pentemont's Baroque Temple by 
Jonathan Prager, in October 2003. Paris-France.

Esteban Anavitarte - Otom-A

<< La migration inévitable, les successives désintégrations
  des espaces habitables / la trace humaine silencieuse et
  visible / le quotidien imperturbable, l'illusoire et fragile confort
de notre espace immédiat et familial / la conséquence impitoyable
de la mort >>.
