Sound project | Cycling in town

Silvain Vanot, ESA - École supérieure d’art du Nord-Pas-de-Calais/Dunkerque-Tourcoing

The principle of this workshop is to use the bicycle as a means of capturing and restoring the urban sound universe. This workshop begins with recordings of cycling in urban environments with digital recorders (ambient noise), but also with piezo sensors (contact noises, mechanical noises, recoating). After cleaning and mixing, these recordings are rendered thanks to mp3 players and portable speakers onto moving bicycles, in silent spaces (the city at night, institutions, art schools, campuses ...). The coaches plan to make similar recordings in major cities around the world to diversify the sound sources and allow Chinese students to discover new environments. In the second stage, the bikes can be turned upside down and the sounds they make increased (metal strips on spokes, various bells,...) giving rise to a collective performance that will eventually put an end to this sound experience.
