Le son du rituel au risque de l’électroacoustique

Abstract : Ritual and music are both types of performances where sound and space are put together, complementary, structurally, or in conflict. But all these built, transmitted relations, including Urbi and Orbi benediction and secret spells, are put inside out by the use of electronics for amplification, recording or transmission of sound. Examples will be taken from Gnawa in Morocco, TIbetan monks from Nepal, and the Holly Week in Compostella, Spain. Theory of sound, through the notion of soundscape, will be used, but even more the theory of sound developped by Michel Chion.
