Locus Sonus
Locus Sonus is part of Locus Sonus Locus Vitae research group – ESAAIX (Ecole Supérieure d’Art d’Aix) whose main aim is to explore the ever-evolving relationship between sound, place, and usage. Our methodology places artistic experimentation at the center of our research. Multidisciplinary theoretical approaches dialogue with, nourish and nurture this experimentation and the research regularly leads to artistic productions in the form of installations, performances, concerts and web-based projects.
