“The boreal listening pole, set up in a small room, is the place where the sound piece “The sky jellyfish” was created during a stay in Reykjavik. I decided on complete darkness to allow the imagination to draw a space as vast as a sky.”

What we listen to:
Two people, Mauro and Caroline, talk excitedly, try to say, to share their impressions in the face of the implausible.

The sublime in the corner of a corridor
“The aurora borealis is sublime. This encounter is translated into exclamatory onomatopoeia, representing the flaws of the language, in this case English, which is not self-evident for any of them. The transmission of such an adventure, in the intimacy of a room so small and so vast at the same time, transformed into a fictitious space for imaginary projections, surely tends towards frustration… but sometimes the jellyfish appears.” C.Bouissou
