Post-Acousmatic

It is inside our deepest convictions that we meet our true weakness. Just like a parody of ourselves.

« De velours et d’acier » is an acousmatic piece that has its origins in my taste for rock music. Its title, « Of velvet and steel » in French, is, by its many level of interpretations, a brief representation of the whole piece. The beginning of this project resides in the multitrack recording of a metalcore band by an acousmatic composer. Rapidly, the harsh guitars, screaming voices and tight drums convinced me of the immense acousmatic potential of all this material.
