"THIS IS THE STORY OF A MAN MARKED BY AN IMAGE OF HIS CHILDHOOD …
OR PERHAPS IS IT THE STORY OF THIS WOMAN COMING HERE TO MEET A
BELOVED STRANGER, AT THE GRANGE-AU-LOUP STREET? OR MAYBE THEIR
STORY?” - SEBASTIÉN ROUX

REVERS OUEST* IS A RADIOPHONIC WORK BASED ON TEXT FRAGMENTS
DRAWING A FUTURISTIC AND MENTAL DESCRIPTION OF THE NANTES CITY.
IT’S AN ISOLATED UTOPIST VISION OF ARCHITECTURE, BUILDINGS MADE LIKE
CONCRETE WAVES. THE TEXTS ARE READ BY TWO ACTORS, WHOSE VOICES ARE
USED AS A MUSICAL MATERIAL AND DIGITALLY PROCESSED BECOME A
GHOSTLY TRAIL OF THE CHARACTERS THEY REPRESENT.

THE PIECE, BY MIXING A FRAGMENTED STORY WITH HEAVILY PROCESSED
ACOUSTIC SOURCES, AIMS TO INTRICATE RADIO ART GENRES LIKE DOCUMENTARY
AND HÖRSPIEL WITH MORE ‘MUSICAL’ FORMS SUCH AS ELECTROACOUSTIC AND
CONTEMPORARY CLASSICAL MUSIC.

THE FIRST VERSION OF THE PIECE WAS COMMISSIONED BY SONOR FESTIVAL AND
CO-PRODUCED BY LA MUSE EN CIRCUIT. IT WAS PREMIERED ON THE 31/03/2007
IN LIEU UNIQUE (NANTES).
