|1||Des Lônes Et Des Pylônes||22:09|
These are selected field recordings around Niévroz (Fr). A lône is a dead river, with a rich biodiversity, it might be the only part that still looks rural around Niévroz, all the rest has been built, becoming a semi-urban zone near Lyon. I don't go back there that often, but I like this desolated aspect of country, surrounded by the mists, sometimes even in summer.
I added three short stories in French, those texts have been written here somehow twenty years ago. I used to go for a long walk in the countryside every day, looking for solitude, trying to catch an echo of imaginary voices forgotten near the dead river. I used to take notes as I was walking, it's talking about village gossips, dead children, lonely old people, nothing is true of course.
