                 VIth International Acousmatic Festival
                             L'ESPACE DU SON

Acousmatic listening frees itself from the grip of the visual and
liberates the mental images and the creative forms in our imagination.
The term "acousmatic" should not frighten; it recalls the name given by
Pythagoras to his manner of teaching philosophy to his disciples. The
pupils were taught behind a curtain and in the dark so that they would
concentrate more efficiently on his speech.
An acousmatic sound thus designates a sound that one hears without
detecting its source. These sounds, called "sound objects", are the
elements that create the base of the vocabulary for concrete music.
Perceived through the loudspeaker, the "sound objects" are in fact the
imprints, traces which, organized and liberated from an "explained
listening", can allow us to access emotions, sensations and metaphors.
This is the work of the composer..
