Le chant de la machine (2020)12:48
Le chant de la machine [The Song of the Machine] is the result of an exploration of the infinite limits of technology. I went in search of sound materials with, in all and for all, a recording of a few seconds of digital silence. Thanks to feedback and extreme settings, sounds escaped. I caught them as I could, and then I did everything. All the tweaks I’d never tried and all the tools I had never dared to thwart. Finally, in spite of the bloody fight between the machine and me, velvet and charm appeared. A disturbed electronic soundscape — sometimes an erratic chase, sometimes contemplative face-to-face — could then take shape. It was interesting to probe what the machine is capable of producing. Does it have things to tell me when it no longer understands me? Can I make it lose control?
I didn’t get a clear answer, it didn’t speak.
But it almost sang.
