"Corps sonores" is a short composed version of the sonic universe of the
interactive sound installation exhibited in the entrance hall of the
Museum of Fine Arts in Mons.
It sonified the staircase leading to the exhibition halls, using 15
contact microphones attached to steps and banisters of the staircase.
Various sound triggering, modulation and transformation control
strategies use both pre-recorded material and the actual sound of the
visitors being amplified. Those were then spatialised on an eight
speakers sound system.
"Corps Sonores", composed at ARTeM
studio, was premiered on the 28th of June 2003 at City Sonics, part of
the "Eté Plus" Festival at the Museum of Fine Arts in Mons (Belgium)
where it ran until the 17th of August.
