Sébastien Roux - Revers Ouest

"This is the story of a man marked by an image of his childhood …” Or perhaps is it the story of this woman coming here to meet a beloved stranger, at the Grange-Auloup street? or maybe their story?” - Sébastien Roux

from Room40 website:

Revers Ouest is a radiophonic work based on text fragments drawing a futuristic and mental description of the Nantes city. It’s an isolated utopist vision of architecture, buildings made like concrete waves. The texts are read by two actors, whose voices are used as a musical material and digitally processed, becoming a ghostly trail of the characters they represent.

The piece, by mixing a fragmented story with heavily processed acoustic sources, aims to intricate radio art genres like documentary and hörspiel with more ‘musical’ forms such as electroacoustic and contemporary classical music. The first version of the piece was commissioned by Sonor festival and co-produced by La Muse en Circuit. It was premiered on the 31/03/2007 in Lieu Unique (Nantes).
