 “The Valley”
Une expérience psychomagique

Dans cette navigation initiatique, la frontière entre le réel et l’imaginaire n’est pas définie. Est ce un rêve? Pas vraiment.
C’est une autre réalité qui jaillit d’une expérience concrète et ce, dans un but de transformation.
On commence par l’acte psychomagique, on s’adresse ainsi à l’inconscient.
Plus l’acte sera difficile à réaliser, plus il sera bénéfique.
Un point périlleux est atteint, on rencontre ses propres démons qui se révèlent être des alliés. La danse s’installe, les percussions servent la transe-formation.
La liberté est aussi dangereuse qu’exaltante, mais parce qu’elle est essentielle, on reste, on se familiarise, on agit, on décide et on s’explore.
Il reste, comme lors des rêves, des souvenirs. Puis les choses s’apaisent, mais la réflexion reste. Et puis on finit par comprendre que tout est déjà là, tout est possible, il suffit de reprendre le pouvoir.
Chacun peut poser les mots qu’il souhaite : voyage ou transe onirique, aventure fantastique ou chamanique, pour moi c’est simplement un appel à la conscience.

” The Valley “
A psychomagic experience

In this initiatic travel, the line between what’s real and what’s imaginary isn’t well defined. Is it a dream? Not really.
It’s another reality poping out from a down to earth experience, in order to achieve a transformation.
We begin by the psycho-magical action, we talk to the unconscient.
The more difficult the action will be, the stronger the benefit will be.
A perilous point is reached, we meet our own demons and they turn out to be our allies. Then the dance starts, the drums are the tools of the trance-formation.
The feeling of total freedom is as exciting as it is dangerous, but, as it’s an essential part of the process, we stay and get used to it.
Some memories will remain, like after a dream, then the effects will decrease, but the brainstorming stays.
Finally, we end up acknowledging that everything has always been here, that everything is already possible, we just need to take our power back.
Everyone can define it with his own words : trip or dreamy trance, fantastic or shamanistic adventure. As far as i’m concerned it’s a call to consciousness.

Baby Kruger

Nathalie Garcia is a French electronic musician and sound designer, based in Belgium.

Her conceptions of sound and music are versatile enough to work in a wide range of application such as film making, theater, sound art, post production and live performance.

After several years at the forefront of the Industrial Rock scene of Bordeaux within the sulfuric and avant-gardist band “Black Hole” which she joined at the age of 18, she courted the electro scene. She became a DJ, composer and promoter of events.
Then she went on to perform her own live electronic music where the efficiency of her mighty breakbeats combined with rich harmonic tones were worked clearly with electroacoustic and electronica values.
In the meantime, she creates the new project “White Drama”, which integrates an abstract hip hop touch and a vocal work, to serve us a unique tapestry of sound in a strange language.

As Nathalie was receiving the 1st price of acousmatic composition at the Conservatoire Musical de Bordeaux, Baby Kruger recorded the album “Selkie” for the Miami-based Schematic Records, which was founded by Josh Kay of Phoenecia and released the EP “SIIS” on the german label Doumen Records.

She is actually working her magic on different fronts like radiophonic projects and has just ended the first part of a serie of hybrid documentaries on the animistic practices.

She also organizes spatialization concerts and lectures with her Brussels-based collective “Maldita”.

Show 556: Sounds of Between; J.B. Imbert for Radio Grenouille

Sounds of Between

Where are these sounds?
Between the words.
It is the chinks which we throw.
They sometimes hide behind.

The harmful garbage of our broadcasting.

Microphone swallows sounds, all of them, the parasites, and in spite of our closed gates, it receives undesirables.

All between ours speeches about the world, between words, this universe made of breathes and tongues smack, is too transmitted, stowaway of the waves.

There are almost more than words.

These connections, these hesitations, these parasites, these chairs which creak are here for the foreground, taking the place which we usually refuse them.

All the sound materials used here were recorded in the Radio Grenouille Studio.
Mixed at Euphonia.

Les Sons de l’Entre Deux

Où sont ces sons ?

Entre les mots.
Ce sont les interstices que l’on jette.
Ils se cachent parfois derrière.
Les détritus nuisibles de la communication radiophonique.

Le microphone avale les sons, tous les sons, les parasites et malgré nos portes fermées, il accueille les indésirables.

Tout ce qu’il y a entre notre évocation du monde, entre les mots maîtrisés, cet univers porté par des souffles et des claquements de langues, est lui aussi transmis, passager clandestin des ondes.

Ils sont presque plus nombreux que les mots prononcés.

Ces liaisons, ces hésitations, ces parasites, ces chaises qui grincent sont ici au premier plan, prenant la place que nous leur refusons d’habitude.

Tous les matériaux sonores utilisés ici ont été enregistrés au studio de Radio Grenouille.
Mixé à Euphonia.
