"Quand on écoute bien le tonnerre, on entend mille et mille bruits différents" - Haïku de Shiki
"When you listen to the thunder, with attention, you can hear thousands and thousands of different noises" - Shiki Haiku
"Flapping Tremor's" creation is based on this principle. The listening of a iologic area is still a fundamental moment whatever is the process used.
The different parts of "Flapping Tremor" were built with wounds and noises recorded with tape-recorders, Nagra III, DAT... the machines used gave a special coloration, a grain to the collected sounds (especially with analogical material).
Sounds (insects, blowing of wind, valley and towns murmurs, ground cracklings at the thaw time, voices... ) were treated with analogical process (segmentation, mixing, editing, loops, distortion, equalization, compression, etc...)
Computing is too standardized, so sampling was used only with a little keyboard for child (Samples of sound were so distorted that they were nice!).
So, all of the sound treatments may have secrete unsuspected harmonics, unknown rhythms, strange fusions, some disconcerting acoustic pigments and grains.
Strokes and silences gave an "impulse" to modulations - and are important. Some magnetic tape's fragments were pasted at the random (The smallest part measure 5 min).
"Flapping Tremor" is a shiver found on some encephalopates. Every living being, suffering or fighting, transmit particular rhythmic sequences, similar to those transmitted by lifeless matter under constraint (for example, there is a disturbing analogy between the rhythm of the fleeting insect and the noise of the distention of some metals).
So, the goal of Bruno Moreigne in "Flapping Tremor" is to investigate the so-called audible spectrum.
Bruno Moreigne, médecin gériatre et chasseur de sons, a déjà publié chez kaon les CD « Bruits, sons, paroles et silences de la forêt » (1997) et « Locus Niger » (2004) et la cassette « Flapping Tremor » (1996).
