THIRD RADIO INTERVENTION
"Signaux", Emilie Mouchous
Performance-intervention at Eastern Bloc
"Signaux" is a time for listening to the waves that surround us, pierce through us, embrace us; it is a tribute to the magic of radio’s journeys. It is the anxiety of waiting and the pleasure of receiving any signal whatsoever, it is the impossibility of perfectly understanding each other, and the renunciation of deciphering the information that does not belong to us anymore. And the comforting sound of the signal eventually becomes more important than the content of the message… By making radios, synthesizers, and invented circuits interact, Emilie Mouchous sculpts sounds for radio just like one travels across the radio spectrum, opening and closing spaces. There are murmurs, voices, codes, and shadows. Despite the presence of humans, radio, on its own, continues to be alive, and probably does beyond human presence.
Émilie Mouchous is a sound artist who creates her own electronic instruments. Her audio and spatial investigations are characterized by the creation of autonomous mini-systems and manifest themselves in various ways: radio pieces, series of electronic objects, collaborative free improvisation, internet art. She studies plants, the migration of dragonflies, and electricity.
