Stéréophonie

(2017)

Text installation written in collaboration with Simon Brown and Julie Doucet.

Commission by DAIMON.

Part of the Interstices event (in English here), July 12 – August 30. Launch July 12, 7pm at La Filature.

Below the install images on the right there is one of the rainy opening, and then a selection of text quarters as layout spreads. The text quartets are installed recto-verso (each pair on one side) on the signs that are spread across the field. There are 101 installed. Text is in French only. Layout by Jennifer Martin.

A reading of pages scattered through a field. Strolling inside an unbound book. Quartets. Pairs of pairs that speak between and through each other. A book with no beginning or end. Phrases without sound. Sounds on the page. Limitphobic word games. Sense troubled by noise. Words reveal themselves on the white pages as being equally apropos and ambiguous, perceptive and perplexing. The gift of deaf. Investigations into the grammar of failure. A right eye and a left ear, a right ear and a left eye. Between sense, through the synapses. Mono plus stereo, one voice plus two. Simon Brown and Julie Doucet join the channel. A collective sound writing, a mini radio trio. A sequenced and detourned circuit: diffuser, transmitter, receiver, respondent. Phonyphonics. Noisefield. Place and time, here and now, where and when there is too much to say but nothing can be done and everything is under threat.

Une lecture à travers des pages dans le champ, se balader à l’intérieur d’un livre sans reliure. Des quatuors. Des paires de paires qui parlent entre elles et à travers elles. Un livre sans début ni fin. Des phrases sans sons. Des sons lus. Des jeux de mots sans frontières. Des bruitages de sens. Des mots qui ressortent des pages blanches pour s’avérer être autant à point qu’équivoque, perplexe que perceptif—des surdoués pour la surdité, des enquêteurs auprès des grammaires de désœuvrement. Un œil droit et une oreille gauche, une oreille droite et un œil gauche. Entre les sens, à travers les synapses. Mono, stéréo, une voix plus deux. Simon Brown et Julie Doucet s’ajoutent aux canaux. Écriture sonore collective. Trio mini radio, enchaînement et détournement du circuit : diffuseur, émetteur, récepteur, répondeur. Phonyphonie. Dans le champ du noise. Le champ du trop à dire quand il n’y a rien à faire et que tout est à perdre.
