Le Domaine offers a series of soundscapes built from an assemblage of composite recordings. First, there are field recordings made using various technological devices, apparatus and media (voice recorder, tape recorder, digital recorder, etc.), all chosen for their sonic qualities.

The objective is to draw links between the technical constraints of a device (its operation, shape, weight, etc.) and the acoustical particularities of the resulting sons fixés. Then, these recordings are transformed, cut and combined with sonic materials sampled from a multitude of composite sound sources (magnetic tapes, broadcast radio, DIY instruments, vinyl records, VHS movies, musical CDs, etc.).

Taking its roots in the experimental tradition of acousmatic composition, Le Domaine does not work exclusively on the manipulation of recorded sonorities. Instead, it explores the ecology constructed from a mediated perception of acoustical phenomenons ; a perception made up of ambiance, rhythm, consistency and texture. This ecological exploration is crystallized here in the form of “figures,” each of which, as a molding, exposes the traces of a sonic environment whose atmosphere reveals the acoustic complexity of a medial ecosystem.
