OFF THE RECORD / SOUND ARC is a presentation of sound experiments in contemporary art and music available on iPods - Apple digital juke boxes with headphones - in free access to the public in the courtyard of the Couvent des Cordeliers, specially converted into a listening lounge for the summer.

Musicians and an artist (iPods 2 to 5) have been invited to propose a subjective compilation, presenting some of the most singular approaches to the musical creation of today with exclusive pieces.

In parallel, the ARC / Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris (iPod 1) presents a selection of visual artists’ intrusions in sound and music.

OFF THE RECORD’ signifies the rarely diffused character and sometimes unpublished of the selected pieces while evoking the progressive dematerialization of the media, from the object in vinyl, tape or CD to the data file (MP3).

Taking advantage of the multiple options offered by the iPod, each selection is organised according to a specific arborescence, going beyond the merely linear series of a traditional compilation. As a new exhibition space, this medium allows us to experience a mode of diffusion, exchange and listening, which challenges common practices.

OFF THE RECORD / SOUND ARC will continue in different forms throughout 2004-2005.

 

First sequence (Summer 2004)

 

IPod 1 - « Bandes originales » 

Rarely broadcast and unexpected, these projects (video sound tracks, concert recordings of artists’ bands, installations, projects for telephones…) testify to artists’ profound interest in the medium of sound, sometimes borrowing from referenced styles (rock, country, electro, spoken word) with a declared and playful amateurism.

IPod 2 - christophe van huffel et motif_r

« saisons soniques» (sonic seasons ) mixes, on the mirror mode, electronic and electro-acoustic music referring to  the four seasons theme, starting here with summer.

IPod 3 - Florian Hecker

member of the experimental Viennese scene, proposes computer generated music, de-activating some of the functions of his iPod so as to privilege others.

IPod 4 - Goran Vejvoda

confronts with « Cris-e et Hurlements » (Crisis and screamings) minimal music pieces to noise, sounds and rock, from the voice to the scream, between protest and instinctive explosion.

IPod 5 : Claude Lévêque

presents “Hyperactive child”.

 

A free access data base, the temporary display OFF THE RECORD/SOUND ARC inscribes sound and music experiments in a real prolongation with the visual arts, and is activated in a deliberately random way by the users themselves.
