26.03.2016 • 16H00 / Talk - Villa Paloma

In the frame of festival du Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo
In collaboration with Villa Arson, Ecole nationale supérieure d’art de Nice.

The 2016 edition of the festival du Printemps des Arts de Monte-Carlo continues its quest to open itself to the singular universe of sound experiments at the heart of fine art.Therefore, this year’s project, called PATCH MUSEUM, is a coproduction involving the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco and Villa Arson, Ecole nationale supérieure d’art de Nice.

Inspired by the particular scenography of the exhibition spaces and the “soul” of Villa Paloma and imagined by enart students, PATCH MUSEUM is essentially oriented towards the idea of a site-specific sound journey and a both free and random wander of the visitor-viewer. the central staircase, the lift, the viedoroom or else the building’s ventilation network become as many game spaces to stage an unusual listening of both the architecture and the spaces.PATCH : a section of computer coding added to a software program in order to modify or correct it ; word referring to the production of an electronic sound ; interface of acoustic connections. This performance / sound installation plays with all those leads and semantic shifts to offer an unprecedented experience of the MUSEUM space.
