Les oiseaux de Bullion

Claude Schryer

Les oiseaux de Bullion has been performed in Montréal and Vancouver…

Les oiseaux de Bullion [de Bullion’s Birds] is an ecological sound diptych inspired by the concept of sound pollution and the rediscovery of a quality of “clear listening” proposed by the World Soundscape Project. In this clip, I have resisted ‘processing’ the material aside from the equalization, editing and mixing of natural sounds. I have explored the ‘sonic imprint’ of my immediate living environment: ‘songs’ from finches-in-a-cage accompanied by trucks from Waldman fish store in Montréal and a ‘song’ from a train reverberating in the Bow Valley in Banff National Park (Alberta).
