VA VA VOUM

ESSAI RADIOPHONIQUE — 2010

  • "VA VA VOUM", 2010

VA VA VOUM A radiophonic ride by Cécile Babiole

A ride to the realm of rumbling reverb and other Doppler effects, where engine tuning and sound design mesh with pop culture and high-tech research. The sounds of engines have inspired musicians of every stripe, from Kraftwerk’s synthetic pop (on Autobahn) to Ministry’s industrial metal (Jesus Built My Hot Rod). Conversely, auto aficionados and mechanics may lend a musical ear to the purring, humming and revving of engines.

Listening cuts both ways.
