The Centre de production DAÏMÔN team is proud to welcome Jim Bell, Marc Fournel and Marc Lavallé from the Plan B artist collective and to present LGO2 as part of the Ville de Gatineau Sentier Culturel 2022 Edition.
The installation LGO2 (Les grandes Oreilles 2) proposes an interactive exploration of the sound territory of Gatineau-Ottawa. By manipulating the physical structure of LGO2, users can explore and reinterpret their everyday sound environment.
Sounds were recorded in the Ottawa-Gatineau region, within a 2.5 km radius of the installation, in January, April and May 2022. They were then transposed in a virtual sound space created for LGO2. By turning the structure and manipulating the right handle of LGO2, users can explore this virtual space and discover the sounds recorded by PLAN B. Depending on how fast they turn the structure and how quickly they manipulate the active handle, users can also create a new audio environment and experiment with their own interpretation of the sound territory.
