[ISEA95] Artist Statement: Cécile Leprado — Le triangle d’Incertitude

Artist Statement

By reproducing the triangulation exercise of sailors to get their bearings, this sound installation reproduces, in a virtual space, a triangle of sounds captured in real time at points located in the South of Ireland (Fastnet), the Northern tip of France and the Western tip of Spain (Cape Finisterre). The “viewer/navigator” can move with these bearings by using his ears and the weather information transmitted to the screen, thereby enriching his perception in order to better face the elements emerging from the original database.

  • Cécile Leprado, France. Born in 1956, she studied electroacoustic music composition at the Conservatoire de Nantes. Since 1986, she has drawn on her experience to conceptualize strictly sonic installations for specific indoor or outdoor venues.
