ARGOS, Centre for Art & Media in Brussels, presents:


Daniel Deshays
Territoires du Sonore

16.03.07 - 18.03.07

 From a dramaturgical point of view the sound tape often remains one
of the most suppositious aspects of the audiovisual production. In
this three-day seminar Daniel Deshays will take a closer look at the
specific nature of the sonorous scene, the co-habitation of sound
with the moving images, and the several narrative economies that
become possible in this respect. The course will be well illustrated
by fragments from about forty films. As an original starting point
for this seminar Deshays chose to topple the traditional primacy of
the picture over sound by analysing films of which the reading of the
picture was made by their makers to depend on the sound. The first
day of this three day course will be dedicated to the
characterisations of sound perception, and how silences, independent
consonances, background and surrounding sounds, direct and indirect
sounds form constitutive elements. Voice-use (in and off) and music
are discussed during the second day. By means of film fragments of,
among others, Johan Van Der Keuken, Jean-Luc Godard, Jacques Tati,
Andrei Tarkovsky, and Jean- Daniel Pollet, a number of particular
sound partitions will be more closely discussed on the last day.

As a sound engineer Daniel Deshays (1950) has an atypical profile. He
is operative in theatre, music and museography. As a lecturer he is
attached to the Ecole Nationale des Arts et Techniques du Théâtre in
Lyon and L’Institut Supérieur des Techniques du Spectacle d’Avignon.
He collaborated on films by, among others, Richard Copans, Chantal
Akerman, Robert Kramer and Philippe Garrel. He is operative in
theatre, music and museo-graphy. His latest publication, 50 Questions
Pour une Ecriture Sonore, a review of his thoughts on the aesthetic
of sound, appeared in 2006 with Klincksieck.
