Landscape with Flute
In these projects that examine natural and synthetic or manipulated sounds from various perspectives, Sylvie Lacroix, Florian Bogner and Alexander Stankovski are unbiased observers of the phenomena of nature and art. In Landscape with Flute, real places contrast with artificially created spaces when "photo-realistic" material (a kind of acoustic survey of the environment penetrated by ambient noises) and solo flute (or nature-independent instrumental) playing are transformed through electroacoustic processing. Etudes sur la mer also juxtaposes two seemingly disparate spheres. Yet as different as the artificial world of virtuoso flute music and the sounds of the ocean might at first seem, they merge as breath and murmur in a zone between worlds: where borders become blurred, it is no longer possible to tell what is natural and what artificial.
