Séminaire scientifique & de création à Cerisy – du 15 au 20 mai 2023 

As part of the Europe B-AIR project, this project brings together international partners from universities, radio and sound arts. It aims to explore new theoretical, methodological and practical tools to promote listening as well as sound creation. Through the prism of ambiances, we question our inhabited and living spaces in the face of environmental and societal changes, and we are particularly interested in so-called vulnerable audiences (very young children, people with disabilities, the elderly and the sick, etc.).

This seminar, including guests, was developped in 4 ways :

– theoretical presentations or reports of experiences in the morning ;
– small group work in the afternoon (writing, recording podcasts, walking, preparing sound installations, etc.) ;
– listening and discovery of sound installations at the end of the day or in the evening ;
– a creative workshop with students from art schools (Annecy, Tours), the conservatory of Cuneo, the school of nature and landscapes of Blois.
