Booklet 24 pages 150x150mm with audio CD 72 Minutes


a limited edition of 250 copies

Versions stéréophoniques à partir des enregistrements et mixages des 4 installations sonores réalisées in-situ entre 2005 et 2016. De même que la carte stimule la connaissance d'un pays, l'oeuvre in-situ renouvelle notre relation à l'espace et au lieu où elle s'installe.

Just as the map stimulates the knowledge of a country, the in-situ work renews our relationship to space and place.
Stereophonic versions based on the recordings and mixes used for the 4 selected sound installations, made in situ between 2005 and 2016.

Intérieurs
[Eric La Casa]

Booklet 8 pages 150x150mm with audio CD 45 Minutes

a limited edition of 200 copies

Qu’est-ce qui caractérise mon milieu sonore intérieur ? Quelles relations j’entretiens avec le réel, à l’intérieur ?

What characterises my inner sound environment?
What relationships do I have with reality, inside?
To answer these questions, I have chosen three striking interiors from the last ten years.
Firstly, in my apartment, following Paris. I highlighted liminal phenomena, making them events in their own right, bringing them out of the inaudible.
Then, in an artist's studio, behind closed doors, I followed her painting process to attempt to grasp the persistence and resonance of her creative gesture.
Finally, in a museum, I amplified the background air-conditioning of the empty spaces to render audible the specific qualities of this monumental architecture, dedicated to the containment of its collection.

During Spring 2015, Eamon Sprod and Eric La Casa spent one week to record on waste grounds, at the north east of Paris, and along the canal Ourcq. Spaces which are somehow both inside yet apart from the city; waiting spaces from which to listen to the threshold of the city.<

CHANTIER 4
[Pascal Battus + Bertrand Gauguet + Eric La Casa] CD 64:45

a limited edition of 300 copies

Depuis 2010, le chantier est un espace où nous questionnons notre pratique, aux rythmes des ouvriers. Improvisant avec la rumeur du site, avec les multiples sons des machines, avec les gestes et les paroles des ouvriers, notre recherche se déploie sur ces multiples territoires sonores, allant de l’acoustique à l’anthropologie.

Since 2010, the building site has been a space where we question our practice, like workers. Improvising with the sound environment, the myriad sounds of machines, the gestures and speeches of the workers, our research unfolds over multiple sound territories, ranging from acoustics to anthropology.

AIR.ratio
[Eric La Casa] CD 63:00

New Edition - a limited edition of 200 copies

Mon projet d’écoute de la ventilation mécanique, au sein des architectures contemporaines, est multiple : une étude sonore, une banque de sons, un catalogue d'ambiances, ou encore une composition musicale. Ce CD est volontairement un objet sans fonction précise. C'est justement ce qui m'intéresse : interroger l'écoute domestique.

My listening project (about controlled mechanical ventilation in new buildings) is multiple : it can function as a sound study, a sonic data bank, a CD of environments, and finally as a music. This CD is intended to be an object without distinctive function. This is precisely what interests me : the question of listening, at home.

Paris Quotidien
[Eric La Casa] CD 74:00 with or without

booklet bilingual (FR-English) 60 pages


new limited edition of 150 copies with a 60 pages 15x15 cm booklet
+ limited edition of 50 copies (only CD + cardboard cover)

Durant deux années, j’ai écouté mon environnement proche et lointain, depuis le seuil de mon appartement. Paris Quotidien est le résultat de cette écoute prolongée : entre inventaire temporaire et documentaire musicale d’un milieu ordinaire.

What is the significance of living here at this address, in this building, said to relate to my existence, to my life, in this time of listening?
My goal is to work the elements of perceived reality in order to reveal their potential in sound and music in my daily space. The editing mixes documentary research with an aesthetic approach that is driven by an idea of the musical. In order to preserve the original listening, the dynamic of the recordings, or for that matter the real acoustics of the spaces, no effects were used.
