Track to the Bees
Sound Installation by Corsin Vogel (Switzerland)
presented on 1st July 2017 at Chamblay (France)
Apart from the wordplay with the festival’s title and which ipso facto provides the installation’s subject, Track to the Bees alludes to a recording by the composer Luc Ferrari (1929 – 2005). In it one hears him walking, microphones in hand, towards a beehive, until he is totally surrounded by a swarm of bees. Corsin Vogel offers us an electroacoustic playback of this mesmerising experience through an immersive physical progression towards a strange acoustic beehive.
