Net_Music_Weekly: Archipelago – Sound Cruises

archipel.jpgArchipelago – sound cruises: European Sound Delta is an travelling artistic residency that took place during summer 2008: two boats simultaneously navigated upstream on the Rhine and Danube rivers from the North Sea and the Black Sea to finally meet in Strasbourg. On board and in each of the stopover cities, thirty international artists were invited to record their sound environment (field recordings, interviews, electromagnetic and sub-aquatic spheres…) and to use the shared sound materials to compose pieces and produce live concerts along the itinerary.

At the end of this trip, a floating listening lounge is unfolding as an Archipelago of creations: embarked on a specially fitted sightseeing boat (a 3000 Watts 4.1 embedded sound system), one will discover there the 27 sound pieces created on board by the residents but also the 10 imaginary audio landscapes from some ten guest composers. These 7 cruises along the Strasbourg canals will each be punctuated by a live performance taking place in a different background each time. At the same time, on the Nuits Electroniques de l’Ososphère site, the Mirror Ball installation will display visual documentation of the two parallel journeys…

ESD is therefore ending after 3 months on the water, a long vibratory cruise is echoing this finale along the sonic and aquatic waves of Strasbourg.
