A new Decor Sonore creation in 2011
Published the 01/01/2011
This year, the Decor Sonore team works on their new creation, which will be released at the begining of 2012 : URBAPHONIX!
Urbaphonix is a mobile team with four sound designers exemplifing the mutation in sound and music artistry since the advent of electronics : half-technicians, half-musicians, they perform with technology and sounds they encounter, faithfully following John Cage’s advice: “If a sound disturbs you, listen to it”.
No turntables, no synthesizers, they compose only from what is already there and that nobody listens to : mechanical and motoring noises, air conditioning drones, human sounds and, above all, street furniture and buildings, instrument, stage and accessories of that instant theatre.
Their mobile sound system allows them to unexpectedly pop up and compose a multiple scenes round across the city.
