Villusions — Les saisons Simone D’Ambrosio

The hypothesis of a reciprocal influence between environment and sound perception is the base of my musical inquiry. Villusions (contraction of the words “Ville”, “city” in french, and “illusions”) is an acousmatic project that takes his origin from the introspective analysis of this complex relation. The metropolis of Montréal with its suburbs is the theatre of this story, the sound envelope of an environment that is in contact with the curious ear of an eternal voyager. For this piece, the third and last one of the project, structures and materials have been developed following the alternation of seasons. The personal interpretations of autumn, winter, spring and summer sound as notes taken during an imaginary itinerary. The spatial projection of the entire work has been designed together with compositional strategies, to give to the eight diffusion channels the illusion of an immersive but precarious sound reality.
