Le Bruit I Mélanie Frisoli

The first acousmatic piece of a series of three spatialized works, Le Bruit I emerged from the sound materials of the digital instrument created for the live performance of the same name. This instrument has the particularity of using only a simple noise generator, but is capable, through various technical processes — that need not be discussed here — of delivering a wide and generous range of sounds. The acousmatic writing in the studio allowed, then, to develop a succession of soundscapes with, sometimes, blurred and dystopian contours. Le Bruit I wanders between several atmospheres and wants to pay tribute to all the sounds that surround us, whether natural or mechanical, with the will to place them on the same level. Thus, the “background noises” have the possibility to become “figure noises”, the tumults become murmurs and the interferences are agitated in the middle of the almost-silence.
