________(Listening sessions)

Sound programming by Méryll Ampe for Glassbox > from April to December 2012

December 13th Thomas Bethmont

It is a question of proposing a double listening: that of sound as such, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, that of sound as a result of a singular process, whether it is music created from hard disks found in the street, concerts that replay their own recording in real time, or music for a specific car model.

Marcel Khalifé’s Lecture  is a compilation of sounds produced by a CD player trying to read a damaged Marcel Khalifé album. The concert that will take place in Glassbox will allow experimenting a live version of this project, during which the reading defects will occur life.

June 28th : ISO.thesis

Metal structures diluting in ethereal drones;
Invitation to a walk on the shores of the chaos of acoustic and electronic timbres;
Dream; Are the guidelines for this concert at Glassbox.
The performance will be accompanied by the theremin, making the computer coexist with one of the oldest electronic instruments.

The ISO.thesis project’s approach lies in the mixing of materials in constant transformation, creating contemplative soundscapes. At the frontiers of ambient, contemporary composition techniques and for the image, music unfolds like a journey whose time becomes uncertain.

April 26 : Méryll Ampe

Glassbox invites you to a special evening to listen to a sound performance by Méryll Ampe on Thursday, April 26 from 7 p.m. This evening opens listening sessions scheduled by Méryll Ampe throughout 2012.

“As a plurydisciplinary artist, Méryll Ampe explores parallels between sound and sculpture based on incorporality. In her sound pieces, she reshapes, distorts sounds collected in everyday life to immerse us in a universe of lightness, texture and reliefs – a minimalist, hushed backwash, like a nocturnal meditation.”
