“Haren” de Flavien Gillié
from Radio Campus Bruxelles
In his essay “Discovering the vernacular landscape” John Jackson Brinckerhoff defines the vernacular, political and emerging landscape. These landscapes overlap, juxtapose and form what Sébastien Marot calls hyperpaysage. In the context of Haren – previously a mecca for chicory production – landscape traces of industrialization contrast with a rural center. Interviews with residents have been recorded, mixed here for Radia with various soundscapes from the place.
Flavien Gillié is doing field recordings as a link between places, voices and memory. He also reworks field recordings and elaborates soundscapes presented live or in some installations.
