Robert Cahen

7 visions fugitivesHong Kong SongL´invitation au voyageJuste le temps

Cahen, who got to know Pierre Schaeffer’s musique concrète in Paris, conceives images from electroacoustically edited tones and seems to alienate them through their atmospheric content. An important key word in the work of him can be seen in the credits to Hong Kong Song, in which he calls his method of visual design “urbanisme sonore.” His dreamlike travels show fleeting moments of a transitory reality that constantly change in time and the acousmatic space of the image.
