Champs de fouilles (Excavations)

Martin Bédard (CA)
Award of Distinction Digital Musics & Sound Art

“Champs de fouilles” (Excavations) was commissioned to mark the 400th anniversary of the City of Quebec. The soundtrack consists of so-called field recordings from Quebec—above all, sounds of excavations. The electroacoustic structures and timbres, which are processed in this piece into a highly complex, multilayered creation, repeatedly allow the listener to “glimpse the original sound.” Bédard has created a composition of great density and beauty in which  authentic audio material and electronic processing enter into a successful synthesis.
