Éric La Casa probes his inner sound environment through the recording of his Parisian apartment, an artist's studio and the empty spaces of a museum.
“What characterises my inner sound environment? What relationships do I have with reality, inside? To answer these questions, I have chosen three striking interiors from the last ten years. Firstly, in my apartment, following Paris. I highlighted liminal phenomena, making them events in their own right, bringing them out of the inaudible. Then, in an artist's studio, behind closed doors, I followed her painting process to attempt to grasp the persistence and resonance of her creative gesture. Finally, in a museum, I amplified the background air-conditioning of the empty spaces to render audible the specific qualities of this monumental architecture, dedicated to the containment of its collection.”

For more than 20 years, while listening to the environment, Éric La Casa (born 1968, Tours, lives and works in Paris) has been questioning the perception of reality and has expanded the notion of what's musical today. Through his aesthetic of capturing sound, his work fits equally into the fields of sound art
. As a result of his in situ listening processes, he creates forms (of attention) that creep into the venues, slowly infuse there, and become other possible spaces. In the same way that the letter stimulates a country's reading, the in situ aesthetic object renews our relationship to space and landscape.
