This electroacoustic piece for 16 loudspeakers was specifically composed for Sporobole’s sound window. The piece emphasizes the specific sound character of the place. It is constituted of digital audio processing, synthetic sounds and sound recordings of Sporobole’s neighbourhood. The composition suggests a musical counterpoint to the ambient sounds, to bring the listener passing-by to wonder about its perception of places, and allowing a new aesthetic appreciation of the space. It aims at re-enchanting the public place and to enable a renewed perception of the everyday life and of the pedestrians transitions spaces.
