descriptions, reviews, &c.

"These compositions were conceived mainly from researches on the Inaudible, and the Unspeakable. Everyday Unknown is a series devoted to the representation of infraliminary sound phenomenon of reality, of everyday life.

During these past years, exploring my daily environment and also my archives, I have discovered a missing part of my listening : beyond the threshold of my hearing, or my measure. I was interested in these territories of the Inaudible, while questioning myself about the making of the present time, with microphones and recordings : the dynamic relationship between the body and the listening of his/her environment. In these infraliminary dimensions, my perception of the reality is constantly stretched to the limits of the comprehensible."-Eric La Casa
