With Christophe Rault
By Floriane Pochon
Radio is music, with something extra
From syllable to breath
From syllable to breath, from singular to collective, from method to improvisation, it’s all about passages today, with Christophe Rault. It is about these tiny movements which, through time, connect and organize all kinds of polyphonies: between things, between humans, between species… What’s left? What keeps going through the ages?
Christophe Rault collects, assembles, and sculpts sound materials to transform them into documentaries, fictions, hybrid forms or music. Co-founder of ARTE Radio with Silvain Gire, he has settled in 2007 in Belgium where he continues to escape all expectations and routines.
Without filter, he gives us some personal impressions in response to our weird questions, recorded at the Albarède Theatre of Ganges, during the Bivouac with Radio Escapades, in October 2016.
