Michel Chion, Lionel Marchetti and Jerome Noetinger will present their new musique concrète composition Filarium. Originally commissioned by Musique Action 2014, this piece will be played through a surround system consisting of 16 loudspeakers while the audience is seated in complete darkness – A unique opportunity for an immersive aural experience.
Composer of musique concrete, Chion has created to date forty works for fixed sounds on audio support – some large, including a Requiem, several “melodrama”, suites , symphonies, etc… In 1970, he invented his own techniques (“impeded scroll”, “pencil”) to use creatively the tape recorder, which – combined or not with the computer – remains its preferred tool. Michel Chion is also a filmmaker, an associate professor at the Université de Paris, and a prolific writer on film, sound, and music.
Lionel Marchetti is a French composer of concrete music, an improviser (electronics, various analogic systems with modified speakers, REVOX reel-to-reel recorder…) as well as a visual-sound artist, a writer and a poet
Jérôme Noetinger is an improviser and composer of electroacoustic music based in France. Projects include his duo with Lionel Marchetti, eRikm and Quintet Avant.

In addition, there will also be a special event on Monday, Oct. 11th at Hörsaal H104, Straße der 17. Juni. Chion, Marchetti and Noetinger will be performing a selction of their works through the largest wave field synthesis (WFS) system: Installed around the entire hall, over 2000 speakers, controlled by a computer cluster with 832 audio channels, allowing creation of sound sources anywhere in the space and providing a near-complete degree of immersion for the listener.
