introduction




Audio Connect ?

What are the stakes and consequences for artistic practice, arising from the multiplication of sonic interrelations between people and places ?




The pool of artistic experimentations related to "connected sonic spaces" is now such that an intersecting examination of the effects which they accommodate and the problems they raise becomes appropriate. We can approach this interrogation on three fronts :



a) How can we categorize these activities in order to have a reasoned measure of the movement or disruption they cause in relation to trends in contemporary audio creation ?

b) These experiments or explorations have in common the fact that they use sound as a medium to work on our "sense of place". By working on sound as a vector, by transporting it through different strata - virtual /presential - on the one side they create audio layers, until now unimaginable and on the other they plunge us into into all sorts of different surroundings. Through this convergence of audio ambiances, we encounter concordance or frictions which can teach us something of the spatial nature of sound and its role in the construction of our sense of location.

c) These practices are most often of a collective or communal nature. In one sense they are tied together by the adopted media in another they ceaselessly attempt to extract new possibilities from that media. This inventivity finds it source in the concerted effort to explore a system's possibilities. The invitation is to zoom in on digital fabrication in the artistic domain, paying particular attention to the question of the specificity of audio art within the panorama of these creative collaborations.
