"Timbre that is no longer measurable by hearing. As if the sound that surpasses us on all sides were the space that matures."
- Rainer Maria Rilke, Distant Song
Auscúltare is a mixed piece for two voices and ultra-directional speakers.
The composition questions the links between the human voice and sound environments. The synthetic sounds, diffused by the four ultra-directional loudspeakers, act here as a necessary counterpoint to the perception of acoustic spaces.
The process consists in playing superimpositions between acoustic human voices and synthetic sounds projected in space. The one and the other extend, complete and tune each other, provoking a play of unheard-of timbres.

Born in Annecy in 1982. After studying music, notably clarinet and drums, he discovered the music of Pierre Schaeffer. A field of possibilities opens up as much with electronic tools as with traditional instruments.
A soloist and polyphonist, Raphaële Kennedy devotes her artistic life to the interpretation of early music and the creation of contemporary works, with the same demand to draw out the palpitation of meaning and the same desire to convey emotion.
First recognized with Jordi Savall, François Lazarevitch and Les Musiciens de Saint-Julien, Jean-Marc Aymes and Concerto soave, Guido Balestracci and L'Amoroso, Jean Tubéry and La Fenice, A Sei Voci, the European ensemble William Byrd, Les Paladins, Le Poème Harmonique, Les Demoiselles de Saint-Cyr..., she appears at major festivals and on numerous recordings dedicated to early music.
She has also become a benchmark in contemporary creation, performing in internationally renowned concert halls and festivals. The dedicatee of numerous works and working closely with composers and electroacousticians, she is notably the voice of visual concerts by Kaija Saariaho and Jean-Baptiste Barrière, and the heroine of Philippe Leroux's opera L'Annonce faite à Marie, the title role in Laurent Cuniot's opera L'Enfant inouï, Pierre-Adrien Charpy's preferred interpreter, and in demand by Robert Pascal, Mauro Lanza, Gianvincenzo Cresta, Matteo Franceschini, Ben Foskett, Loïse Bulot and Bertrand Wolff.
A specialist in recitals for solo voice and electronics, she is also a regular guest artist with the ensembles tm+ (Laurent Cuniot), Multilatérale and Les Métaboles (Léo Warynski), Ars Nova (Benoît Sitzia) and Regards. She was a permanent member of Solistes XXI (Rachid Safir).
She is artistic director of Da Pacem, a company dedicated to early music, contemporary creation and cultural dialogue, founded with composer Pierre-Adrien Charpy. It is within this framework - from duos to small ensembles and multidisciplinary or multimedia performances - that she freely bases her work on sensuality, theatricality and rhetoric. She thus favors the embodied transparency of the voice, the accuracy of style, the brilliance that emerges from the angle of the word, and the declamatory gesture that makes music the amplification of speech.
She has made some forty recordings, and in 2016, with composer Pierre-Adrien Charpy and video photographer Isabelle Françaix, founded the Avec musical and visual collection for the Cypres label.
Trained as a pianist, Isabelle Deproit completed her musical studies at the Lyon Conservatoire, where she first won a medal in this discipline, then a first prize in accompaniment. She also obtained a degree in musicology from the University of Lyon II, and trained as a choral conductor at the ENM in Villeurbanne. At the same time, she studied singing with Cécile de Boever, Mireille Deguy and Elène Golgevit, and joined a number of ensembles including Spirito (Nicole Corti), the Solistes de Lyon (Bernard Tétu) and the Six Voix Solistes de Résonance Contemporaine (Alain Goudard), Calliope, Voix de femmes (Régine Théodoresco), Solistes XXI (Rachid Safir), the Mora Vocis ensemble and the 4 anima quartet, with whom she records several discs and performs regularly in France and abroad (Italy, Canada, Hong Kong...).).
She is also a soloist in various operas and oratorios (Miss Bagott in Britten's Le petit ramoneur , La Colère in Rameau's Les éléments réunis , Orphée in Guilhem Lacroux's La nuit des temps modernes ...) as well as a singer/actress and improviser in musical theater pieces (Compagnie Abribus, Collectif Arts Mobiles, Compagnie Amadeus rocket...).
Her love of contemporary music, and particularly of new music, has led her to collaborate with composers such as Kaija Saariaho, Lucien Guérinel, Sophie Lacaze, Olivier Mellano and Bertrand Wolff... Exploring the link between the body in movement and the voice, she took part in the show Apnée with choreographer Yuval Pick (CCN de Rillieux-la-Pape) and runs workshops on this theme.

Guillaume Stagnaro's protean work initiates dialogues with other creative actors (artists, musicians, theorists, etc.).
By developing algorithmic systems and writings, he explores the collaborative dimension and rethinks networked work, while escaping the egotistical behavior of the artist. Guillaume Stagnaro revisits the notions of responsibility, compatibility and ecology of thought by focusing his attention on new types of relationships. He collaborates with many artists such as Saâdane Afif, Nicolas Moulin, Marie Reinert, Francis Alÿs, Eric Baudelaire, Félix Blume... - stagnaro.net
