100% binaural flutes

Flutes and compositions : Jean-Mathias Petri
Binaural design : Lucie Hardoin

Gathered around a strange capturing head, the various flutes of Jean Mathias Petri take you on a dreamlike and surprising trip. At her side, Lucie Hardoin realizes this flight with the help of binaural spatialization tools, developed by IRCAM and FLUX, making the sound closer to its perception by the human ear.


Living in New York

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, an immersif poetry series about Léo Ferré (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.

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.

Thrill Tunnel

This piece is composed with binaural soundscapes and monophonic sounds, it was realized for the “Brest 2008” event in order to put in sound the tunnel that connects the castle and the commercial port.

Sound documentary

T'en as ? Moi pas ! Quand j'en aurais, ça va changer...

Do you have any? Not me ! When I get it, it will change …

I was challenged by the slogan: Ğ1, people at the center of the economy » and I felt a sincere desire to restore meaning to the word “Equality”. For many of us today, we are fed up and this exasperation is growing and spreading. More and more beautiful initiatives are born, trying to make things change, bringing a little comfort in a heavy atmosphere that inhabits and parasitizes our collective unconscious.

Even if it is not easy to upset its codes, its habits, its functioning, a zealous desire for intelligent and thoughtful change inspires me and I wanted in this free sound test to explore the possibilities of the Ğ1 and to transcribe this delightful experience to the listeners. And to answer my questions, I went to the RML (Free Currency Meeting) organized in Douarnenez in May 2018.

“Portraits de Capistes” (documentary series in progress)

I have been living in Plouhinec since 2016 in Cap Sizun located in southern Finistère, “at the end of the world” as they say … I chose this place of life as a welcoming land for the incredible energy that it gives off , its natural elements, its nature and for its authentic inhabitants. I was marked by the warm welcome of the Capistes and subjugated by the incredible stories of certain inhabitants. After more than 2 years immersed in this amazing territory, I now want to draw up a series of sound portraits of these atypical characters in order to share some of their crisp anecdotes …

Sometimes they were born there, sometimes they come from elsewhere …

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.

Shared gardens

This production, composed exclusively of sound recorded in binaural, was realized for the forum of the shared gardens that took place in Brest in November 2007. The shared gardens are gardens put in place among others by the association “Vert le Jardin” in various neighborhoods of Brest with the aim of creating a social link between the inhabitants of the neighborhoods by allowing them to meet and exchange around a piece of garden.
