"Extraite des limbes des flaques, des mares et des étangs, se déploie une biodiversité fantasmagorique. Baissez-vous, un peu plus bas, un peu plus près de la surface, et buvez le bouillon par les oreilles."
- Etienne Noiseau & Irvic d’oliver (ACSR/Silence Radio).

This sound work is based on hydrophone and above water recordings made in freshwater environments at various locations in Spain and Slovakia between 2007 and 2012.

Atelier de Création Sonore Radiophonique (Brussels) commissioned this work for the online project Silence Radio, included in its final edition "Hiver 2012: In the End", December 2012.

This Bandcamp edition includes the original stereo work and also a quadraphonic mix (as four bonus tracks). Please, see technical note below for multichannel playback set-up.

A stereo version of the work (MP3 320kbps) is available at Silence Radio as a free download. Links /

The piece was awarded on the International Sound Art Call ‘Campos de Sonido’ by Sierra Centro de Arte in Huelva, Spain, January 2013. Selected events and broadcasts: Acoustic Ecology Symposium (Kent University, UK), Sonorities Festival 2014 (Belfast, UK), Symposium Invisible Places 2015 (Viseu, Portugal), radioCona: ZimaFM 2015 (Ljubljana, Slovenia), SOUND / PLACE (Goldsmiths, London, UK), INTER- #5 (Glasgow, UK), Brooklyn Acoustic Ecology Festival 2015 (NYC, USA), among others.

TECHNICAL NOTE (multichannel playback/quad version)

The four audio files are intended for playback through four independent speakers arranged in a square around the listener(s) position. The speakers should be preferably identical and full-range.

Use any DAW software (i.e. REAPER) to route each of the files into the four speakers via four independent hardware outputs of an audio interface. All channels/outputs should be set at the same level.

Speaker/channel assignments are indicated on the individual filenames:
ch1 (=frontLeft) - ch2 (=frontRight) - ch3 (=backLeft) - ch4 (=backRight).


released March 4, 2016
