Les Chantiers de L’O.R.E.I.

Composition and artistic direction : Michel Risse

2009 CREATION
The Work Sites of the O.R.E.I.
In an atmosphere of marvelous science and sound poetry, researchers show around their archeophonic excavation site.

Based on scientific texts and theory as surprising as serious (if not testified), on unique sound and scenic devices, and on a truly participative theatricality, each installation set up by the O.R.E.I.* team is an in situ creation, renewed by the place's audience, topography and memory.

The O.R.E.I.

The O.R.E.I. – The Organization of Research in Invisible Environments * – is an independent laboratory that was founded by Marcel Baudot during the interwar period. Its work was on the acoustic manifestations of our environment, and, in particular, on paleophonic phenomena or the presence of sounds retained by materials.

Visit Protocol

This exploration of the inaudible happens in a general atmosphere of secrecy and rituals, ideal for meetings of secret societies.

The Paleophonic Work Site

The work site is composed of several research modules, each one is introduced and led by a guide. The type and the number of modules can vary depending on their relevance to the specific site.

A staging of listening

Since the world's creation, sound and speech were irreparably volatile, elusive, ephemeral, invisible, and without monetary value. That was until the day when in 1877,   Thomas A. Edison succeeded, for the first time in the history of man, in re-hearing his  own voice reciting a nursery rhyme.
