Nicolas Tourney is a French experimental musician, sound designer, and owner of the label Snow in Water Records. His electronic works concern perception and act of listening, with the use of various strings, drones and noise-making devices.
His new album was inspired by the heatwave evenings of June 2018, in the south of France, when the heat made sleep impossible. The music is constructed like a soundtrack for a film where the narrative is generated directly by public cameras at airports. Timbres, intensities, pitches and rhythms offer a perceptual immersion, guided by microphones, that opens us to our habits and our dreams.
