Adèle DE BAUDOUIN (France)
Passionate about the animal world, I studied at the National Museum of Natural History of Paris and got a Biology Conservation Master’s degree in 2013. For few years I have worked in many organisations working on protection of nature. I mainly studied frogs, turtles and snakes.
During my naturalistic observations I discovered the beauty of soundscapes. After some months of recording natural sounds with my small recorder, I followed a training with Bernard Fort, acousmatic French composer, to learn how to record soundscape. After this experience I decided to do my best to pass on my passion for the beauty of natural sounds.
I have been studying in the electroacoustic class of Laurence Bouckaert in the Villeurbanne’s National School of Music (ENM) for two years.
Currently, I am working on different projects focused on wild music : electroacoustic creations, book to listen, shadow theatre…
Rana temporaria is also known as European common frog. This little amphibian breeds in shallow fresh water. In early spring they congregate in ponds and this start of delicate and loud calls, emitted by hundreds of males. A drone seems to arise from the surface of the water.
The electronic drones invite us to listen the beauty of these wild songs. They guide us through different point of views : distant, close, under water… To finally immerse ourselves in the natural frog drone.
