La physicalité du son.
Tome 1.

„Y a peu de trucs qui sont physiques au point
que sont au fond physiques les trucs sonores !“

As part of the quite wonderful 10th edition of the Sonic Protest Festival, Emmanuel Rébus and myself entertained and educated the visitors of the festival's Let's Get Physical-part - à La Générale, Paris XI - with, on and about the phys-icality of sound. Emmanuel did part 2, on Monday April 7th. I did part 1 on the day before that, Sunday April 6th.

Here is the abstract...

on the other hand: there is NO SOUND without MATTER.

There is no-thing that is as physical as is sound.

sound is a sequence of waves of pressure that propagates through compressible media.

sound & music move matter.

Which in turn ... moves us ...

of the techniques of sound recording, sound has become more physical encore.

Recording has reified sound.

Sounds became objects that we can touch and hold in our hands, as
