During Spring 2015, Eamon Sprod (Tarab) and Eric La Casa spent one week to record on waste grounds, at the north east of Paris, and along the canal Ourcq. Spaces which are somehow both inside yet apart from the city; waiting spaces from which to listen to the threshold of the city.
Reissue of the CD released on the label Chloë (USA) in 2002, recorded in July 2001 in the Paris metro station, during the last two hours of service. A reference, between site-specific improvisation and sound art.
Chantier is a collective project with Pascal Battus on found objects, Bertrand Gauguet on saxophone, and Eric La Casa on microphones. The trio's proposal is to develop a sound practice created on building sites, amongst the machines and the builders. The fourth part of this project was recorded on the building site of the Philharmonie in Paris.
Two compositions conceived mainly from researches on the inaudible and the unspeakable, as part of a series devoted to the representation of infraliminary sound phenomenons of the reality, of everyday life.
Stereophonic versions based on the recordings and
mixes used for the 4 sound installations, made in-situ between 2005 and 2016 (with Jean-Luc Guionnet, Arnau Horta, Seijiro Murayama and Michaële-Andréa Schatt).
For two years, Eric La Casa has been recording the urban sonic environment of Paris from the windows of his own apartment. Between a temporary inventory and a musical documentary, Paris Quotidien is the result of this long experiment. Includes a 60-page documentation booklet with photographs.
