"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.
