Living in New York

Directed by: Lucie Hardoin
This first episode is part of a series of New York soundscapes mixing interviews, sounds and images with a view to view the image as “trompe l’oreille” with a few points of meeting here and there.

Phonographic memory (work in progress)

“My artistic approach in this project was born out of my passion for sound and my admiration for the work of Léo Ferré. I chose a first text entitled “Of all colors” for the relevance of the words used in this poem sung as well as the relationship to colors that will be evoked by sounds and images. You can listen the first step of this production, image will come soon…
Thanks to my friends who accept to put them voice on this project, to Jean Mathias Pétri for flutes, to cli “D anché” a quatuor of clarinet, to Alan Madec for the accordion, to Curtis Hasselbring for the trombone.
A “live” variation of the work will be offered later in the form of a visual and sound performance combining Vjing associated with a sound diffusion with headphones mixing sounds pre-recorded and produced live around an dummy head . A scenography will complete the device. ”

Where does jazz go?

Jazz enthusiasts, we went to New York where we spent 3 months filming concerts and interviewing emblematic musicians of the avant-garde scene. With more than 60 hours of image and sound (about thirty concerts and about twenty interviews), we started the post-production phase of the project in January 2005: video tape editing, mixing of audio recordings, translation and subtitling interviews … and finally we realised four 52-minute documentaries.
