  • Paleficat
  • Genre: Field Recording
  • Duration: 30 min
  • Paleficat is a sound composition (composed during fall 2023) combining field recording, electroacoustic composition and electronics. "Paléficat' tells the story of the disappearance of the last large 'natural' area of the Toulouse conurbation, an area called Paléficat. This area is now in the middle of a project for a new "High Environmental Quality" district of 6,000 housings. Paleficat is a sound art piece about the growing artificialization of land in our urban agglomerations, a prelude to our disconnection from living things.

    The piece is in three parts, the before, the during and the after of the construction of the new urban complex. The compositions for the before and during sections are based on sound material collected in and around Le Paléficat (before and during the start of the works). The after part is based on sound recordings taken in two major new 'High Environmental Quality' districts in Toulouse, where the sound elements are of the same order as the Paléficat's next urban project.

    The piece is in stereo and exists as a live performance in 8.1. This piece has obtained a financial support from the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique.

Benoit Bories

Benoit Bories is a sound artist. He has produced audio documentaries and sound art pieces for different public broadcast companies. His sound art activity comes originally from the radio documentary. It has gradually transformed over time towards more hybrid productions combining forms borrowing from sound art, acousmatic composition and field recording while retaining this desire to document societal issues. He was, during his experiments, brought to establish a formalism of sound writing which is specific to him. His learning and practice of sound writing are based on in-depth training in physics, a taste for musical experimentation and a desire to confront social issues in the field of these issues. He insists on maintaining an artisanal relationship to sound work.

Since 2016, he has been presenting his pieces in the form of “documentary concerts” and developing sound pieces for live performance, or installations. He has collaborated with several festivals and cultural venues for his performances and regularly participates in artistic residencies abroad. Benoit Bories has won several international awards and mentions for his sound work (Premios Ondas Prize, Prix Bohemia, Phonurgia Nova Awards, New York Radio Awards, Grand Prix Nova Romania, Prix Europa, IDA Awards).
