A creator of musical landscapes and sonic frontiers waiting to be explored, Cécile Le Prado’s compositions are a musical tour de force, a fantastical metaphor for a real-life soundscape, and the pretext and the starting point to embark on an inward journey.
Le Promeneur Ecoutant (The Listening Walker) is the outcome of sound composition experimentation as well as research into modelling urban traffic flows and architecture conducted by research programmes Terra Numérica and Terra Dynamic. Its application within an interactive ‘game’ provides an opportunity to demonstrate its capacity to recreate in real time acoustic spaces that work as much for the participant armed with a PlayStation controller playing their way through the installation as for the passive onlooker of this performance.
As visual as it is sonic, dynamic work Le Promeneur Ecoutant is above all a shared experience within a virtual but real urban environment where the walker is immersed in close interaction with the spaces, sounds and avatars that provide the narrative for the walk itself.
