Benoit & Co. Graffitis sonores

Sound installation (women voices) in the toilets for men.
The man goes alone to the toilets, it is a necessary stage which is repeated at different times during the day, each time loosing something. "Sound Graffiti" will replace the texts usually written on the walls or the door and will provide a new context. The customer passes quickly in this space, and will be distracted during a short, fast moment, somehow like the Proust's cake (madeleine) which will rock him into another dream, or another thought, preferably directed towards childhood. In any case, something different than the world that's awaiting him behind the door, his girlfriend for example.

Texts written or collected by Sylvie Benoit and recorded by 5 women in French, English or Italian.

Never will the entering man hear what the previous one did.

This very moment will belong to him exclusively. He will not have lost too much in this place.

What Makes Computer Music Computer Music? An observation: if you grill a chicken in a modern, computer-controlled electric oven, the result will be neither more nor less than grilled chicken. It is not "computer chicken." Applying this observation to music-to the use of computers for musical tasks-demands that one ask the question, "what makes computer music computer music?"
