  • This creation relates the relationship I had with this construction site (a hospital being destroyed and renovated to make housing for the elderly) which I followed over several months. This piece reflects how I imagine these places when I feel them, how I regain a form of control over them by letting them express themselves. Trying to trigger an imagination, playing with urban sounds and more specifically construction sounds, so that can transgresses their origins. The empty buildings fill up, they breathe and become active where there was only noise and residue. This is where the resistance lies. It is located in the places, it is imaginative, it is partly sound and it becomes easier to take over these spaces.
    By listening to these sounds and their compositions, try to inhabit these places differently. Reactivate through listening what has been silenced within us, activate what is brewing somewhere in the interstices of our cities, of our imaginations. So it’s another city that we see, another listening that engages between urban convulsion and urban contemplation.
    A painting, an autopsy of my imagination when it comes to open microphones to these places under construction, when it comes to dealing with and through these environments.

Mathias Guilbaud

With a background in film studies, I like to work and question the way sound can awaken the senses and question our relationship with spaces. It is through this practice combining documentary, acousmatic and phonographic composition, that I create sound pieces where living spaces and intimate stories intertwine. Cities represent a privileged listening ground where it questions our relationship to public spaces and urban planning. I especially work on how sounds of the city and its inhabitants are strongly connected and in active dialogue with one another. I am currently working on a project called Voies Urbaines, a project on the sounds of construction sites, on the specificity of these sounds and what they tell us about the evolutions of our cities.
