In February 2022, after having crossed all of France, we set camp in the Domaine du dragon.
Surrounded by beautiful landscapes and beautiful people, I went for a long walk on a day off and I managed to catch some of the magical atmosphere of this place, before the pre-premiere of Entre deux Mondes.
But nature sounds are not the main sounds surrounding the circus artist’s everyday life. Train sounds. Hours and hours of train sounds. Here I managed to catch the loud and powerful entrance of a train in a station in France. Yes, it is slightly edited.
The Domaine was however the best place to record water sounds, as there was a small brook next door, a water leak in the ceiling, a dripping water boiler, hissing toilets and a gurgling roommate. Here are a few extracts.
In 2022, during one of the last week of residency with the circus company Hors Surface, I bought a field recorder to be able to record my surroundings.
There began the field recording experiment.
