MOREIGNE, BRUNO: Bruits, sons, paroles et silences de de la Foret
Quantity in Basket:none
It may be simply packed in a folding cardboard cover, but this is a remarkable piece of work using a massive amount of exquisitely recorded environmental sound (more or less exclusively taken in the Chabrieres forest) to construct 10 very different pieces, based variously on minerals, plants, animals, gestures, the sky, fire, twilight, night and water. Slipping from unprocessed to processed natural sound, this is as much a sound composition as a document - actually much more: there is musical intelligence constantly at work. And some of the sounds of the world are beyond anything electronic (the low rumble of an underground explosion, for example). This moves me for one. An exemplary piece of work.
