What better opportunity than the Fête de la Musique to warm up your ears at Chez Urbain and transform any object into a source of sound and music? Étienne invites you all to play with surprising sounds through using contact microphones, small mixing consoles, reverberations, and headphones. At the end of the workshop a mini-concert will let you discover what other participants have been working on.

Sound concept creator for the pioneer of electro-acoustic music Pierre Henry and artistic co-director of Lutherie Urbaine, Étienne Bultingaire is a conscientious artist-poet of the acoustic in situ who mixes an extreme precision with little-known recovered materials or sound properties. He creates for the Clos Barbizier an interactif sound scenary: the sounds captured are traited and then diffused while doing echo to the interventions of those who will scratch, rub or play two unusual instruments he will build and install within the Clos Barbizier during the first days of Bien Urbain.
