N° 14 Lock

Acousmatic music


Duration 6′

A sound film of a passage through N° 14 Lock on the river Rhône.
Water can also support a whole life and intense human activity full of noises, diverse and alien to “landlubbers”; navigating on rivers, where the sound environment is all fluidity, can also create shocks, more or less violent, because water moves; it is percussive, and sometimes very hard.

N° 14 Lock is water, heard from a boat passing one of the enormous locks on the river Rhône, where everything is highly amplified and takes on gigantic proportions.
