Content description

The sound symposium will focus on a selection of sound recordings that were made during the period of the deconfinement. How can these recordings be put at work and what can they tell us about the environmental changes during these four weeks? Experimentation with sound and the above mentioned recordings will be at the core of the seminar which will take place at the TLH – Theatre les Halles in Sierre.
