(Cathédrales: I) Ville Aux Cent Clochers David Ledoux [LED]

Cathédrales is an acousmatic journey, conceived for a dome of loudspeakers, that presents sound immersion as a “montrage” (from the French montrer and montage) for the ear, inspired by the physical and sonic presence of churches in Montréal. The journey’s first part, Ville aux cent clochers [City of a Hundred Bell Towers], spotlights bell towers as both urban landmark and soundmark. Although the main sound sources are not limited to traditional church bells, this spatial essay takes its inspiration and sound materials from acoustic ecology and Montréal’s city life, in order to interpret the spatio-temporal relationship between the individual, the urban environment and the sounds that are specific to its identity.
