For several years now, Sébastien Roux has been working on the principle of translation: he utilizes preexisting artworks (visual, musical, literary) as scores for the realization of new sonic works (radiophonic or electroacoustic). After having visited the DIA foundation where artist Sol Lewitt’s "Wall Drawings" were being exhibited, Roux tried to imagine a system for “listening” to these drawings. The result of this research was Inevitable Music, a series of “sonic translations” of Lewitt’s works.

These electroacoustic pieces are meant to be heard in the context of a collective listening session.

Sébastien Roux first came to music as a guitarist in different rock bands before embarking upon a career as an electroacoustic composer, which has taken him in multiple directions: albums, acousmatic music concerts, improvisation, audiovisual performance, music for dance, radiophonic art, live music for cinema, and sound installation. In parallel, Rioux works at IRCAM. He has presented his works in Europe, North America and Australia.

Presented in collaboration with the Akousma Festival
