BACK TO IMAGES - VOIX DES BOIS
A first edition that gave a voice to the forest and the sounds that inhabit it.
On Saturday June 10, the Hangar Y hosted a program dedicated to "Voices from the Woods" as part of the "Les Nuits des Forêts" Festival. On this occasion, the Meudonnais forest was honored through several artistic and cultural events.
Thank you for your enthusiasm and participation! Thanks also to all the artists and speakers who made the day such a success.
"Nature and science are an integral part of the identity of this new cultural destination in Greater Paris. Situated on the edge of the Meudon state forest, the Hangar Y park offers immediate proximity to a protected natural environment. A cultural venue dedicated to a wide range of artists and practices, Hangar Y regularly invites researchers, scientists, naturalists, biologists and writers to debate and pass on the tools of understanding that enable everyone to experience the complexity of our world. Joining events committed to tackling contemporary challenges, such as "Les Nuits des Forêts", is a priority objective for Hangar Y."
Aurélie Baron, director of artistic projects at Hangar Y.

In Les arboricoles (2013), Bertrand Dezoteux brings to life an artificial landscape populated by hybrid beings. Inspired by the Landes forest, shaped by the hand of man, the artist pushes the artificiality of this forest to the limit by metamorphosing its trees into computer-generated images.
Using deckchairs equipped with high-definition headphones, audio-naturalist Marc Namblard invites you to listen to the sounds of wildlife captured in forests here and elsewhere.
Author Anouk Lejczyk presented a selection of excerpts from her latest poetic work, Copeaux de bois. Passionate about forests, she has trained as a woodcutter and shares the daily lives of woodland "inhabitants" in her books.
In these three solos, choreographers Elsa Lyczko, Marie Simon and Orianne Vilmer were successively inspired by the poetry of the park.
With Frank Madlener, Director of IRCAM and Jérôme Sueur, eco-acoustician.
The meeting provided an opportunity to discuss the changing soundscapes of French forests, and to try and answer some fascinating questions: Why listen to forests? How can we hear the rustle and sounds of the earth, trees and living things? Why are these soundscapes true markers of the state of health of these forest ecosystems?
Hosted by Caroline Lachowsky, journalist and producer of RFI's "Autour de la Question" program.
