This soundwork’s starting point is in the heatwave evenings of June 2018, in the south of France, when the heat made sleep impossible.

It is constructed like a soundtrack for a video movie where a narrative process is directly generated by airport public cameras. Timbres, intensities, pitches and rhythms « drop shadow on airport runway » and offer a perceptual immersion, guided by microphones, open to our habits and our dreams.

This musical piece was originally presented during the JeffersonParkExp 2020. You can see the live performance here: Jefferson Park EXP November 15, 2020. Set 2. Nicolas Tourney.

Please use headphones or a real stereo device.
