Julia Drouhin

Julia Drouhin observes sounds in specific territories and poetic narratives. She invents itineraries as soundwalks, radiophonic creations or performance using found sounds and fetish objects. After a year immersed in Orthodox Greek practices and ex-voto, she composed sound ambulation from air, dust, print and haunting capitation.

Drouhin is interested in the art of walking, especially in sound art, and has field-recorded a 5-month journey in France, Japan, Australia and Korea, walking in unknown landscapes, exploring language and tradition. Her composition Japan Breakfast : Le Heron Blanc was broadcast on France Culture in 2011.

She curates the international “Radiographic Creation Day”, 24 hours of radio art from 100 artists, broadcast in 57 radios/galleries, and an electronic and electroacoustic festival in Burgundy, France. In 2011 Drouhin was awarded a PhD from the University of Paris 8, France.

In this lecture Julia Drouhin will question the relation between field recording practice, space and time perception, built on personal subjectivity, social schematics, and chemistry. She will present her Disco Ghost, Magnetic Playlist and Ghost Track projects to reflect on about the aesthetic issues of haunted air.
