Gaia Drifting in the Sky by Julie Rousse (Campus Paris)
Some sonic thoughts on the link between the Earth and the Universe.
From radio to RADIA : creating for the RADIA network a composed play of electromagnetic signals.
With field recordings and electromagnetic reception recordings from around the world, here is a sonic drift about us, the earth and the universe, without much intention for narrative structure. I want to talk about the very little time we have left to make earth a better and peaceful world ; how fragile and wounded nature is, although still offering us pure moments of bliss ; waves link us together with everything. In the end, we are one with the world, time has no meaning, nothing comes first. All in all is all in one.
Julie Rousse is a sound artist and improviser performer.
Her work is diverse and expressed through several different experimental projects and based on improvisation : live acts, sound installations, music scores for dance, performance, films, visual art and documentary. A passionate phonographer and noise lover, she is always looking for new sonic sources in her worldwide travels, exploring the possibilities of sound capturing in specifically chosen contexts, whilst working with different recording devices. She oscillates between pure field recordings and a special attraction for archaic, lo-fi recording machines. She uses that sonic collection – in an experimental process – as her raw material, an infinite source of rhythms and colors which she shapes with a real time sound treatment software – real time being the essential element of her spontaneous and chaotic approach. She digs in the sound – intruding in the detail – in search of new textures and raw sounds.
In solo or along with musicians from the experimental scene, she has played worldwide in venues and festivals.
