The project Géotopoét(h)ique du territoire Auxois-Morvan (http://morvan-auxois.ingeos.org) conducted in 2008-2009 in conjunction with the artists Dom & John Paul Ruiz, among other, seeks a "sound statement" of the cantons of the country Auxois-Morvan in the French department of Côte d'Or.

Facing many questions and alternatives that could make such kind of statement, I have developed a number of tools, methodologies, techniques and concepts of exploration of the "sonic part of the landscape".

The work kdi dctb 181 [d] - 4th variation built around these recording sessions - intends to report voluntarily, out of any idea of composition, of these questions, explorations of these multiple sites, the discovery of this acoustic space, routes ("land lines"), but also doubts and failures in the project.
Exploring the possibilities of spatialization, the work, a suite of voice and "field recordings geolocalized" intends to be a sort of "impossible listening point" of that territory.

Under the project "Territoires sonores", conducted with the agricultural schools of St-Herblain and La Roche Sur Yon from October 2010 to March 2011, I accompanied two classes on listening territory projects, collectage and sound composition.

On the sidelines of the project, a group of students conducted an exploration of the Conservatory of Music in the city of La Roche-Sur-Yon. True to my principle of composition, always "related, and with the place, " I chose to deal here, as an exercise, a work derived only from their sound captures.

A classic form, voluntarily extremely composed, echoing the original sounds and labyrinthine character of the place. A first version of this piece was created in concert, in the same place, March 15, 2011.

Cédric Peyronnet (aka toy.bizarre / ingeos) is a sound artist working since the ’90 around phonography (Field recordings, “sound hunting”…), soundscapes, using the principles of concrete, acousmatic, electroacoustic music.

His work, whose main theme is the exploration of places by sound recording, listening and sound sculpting, take form of compositions and sound pieces (CD, Vinyl... more than forty references published since the ‘90), concerts, sound screenings and sound installations.

His works on soundscapes led him to practice “sound mapping” and implement daily the principles of acoustic ecology. On that part, he is also working from time to time in schools, “teaching” kids (Well, and older…) about our “sound environment” and the importance of the ear.
