Where you did not expect anything
Getting the run around
Delta Port-Saint-Louis-du-Rhône, at the mouth of the great river. Napoléon Beach, a 10km long waterfront. We do not admire white sailboats on the double-blue of sea and sky, but black blood tankers squatting in front of infinity. Behind the beach, a wild and shady salt marsh, the sansouire, groves of samphire and birds’s property. Semi-clandestine sheds. And beyond, within reach of nostril, Fos-sur-Mer, one of the largest industrial and port areas of the world.
Twelve SEVESO sites on a launch of chimneys standing to attention of cyclopean gantries.
Compose an audio-journey on Marseille-Provence 2013 territory, as a response to Radio Grenouille‘s invitation: a new chance to mix sounds with Alain Damasio’s words, who know how to spark the moving reliefs of living forces.
Thanks to Stéphane Jourdan for his in situ pics!
