Cédric Maridet talks about sound
Cédric Maridet gives a lecture this week on ambisonics and recording surround sound audio for LadyBug 3 video. Cedric was recently co-creator of the PLACE-Turkiye installations which used 10 ambisonic soundscapes for each of the 10 panoramic video recordings that features in this work. Cédric also compiled 112 compositions from the ethnographic and contemporary archive of Kalan Music (Istanbul) one for each of the stereo panoramic photographs that appear in this work.
Cédric Maridet is an artist based in Hong Kong since 1999. He received his PhD in media art at the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong in 2009. His research aims at clarifying fundamentals in the heterogeneity of listening intentions in order to frame essential connections for sound art in a holistic, perceptual and theoretical approach. His art practice in video and sound (recorded or in real time streams) relays his theoretical concerns on the act of listening taking the form of compositions, installations and audio-visual works. He has participated in many exhibitions and performances worldwide and was awarded Prize of Excellence in the Hong Kong Art Biennial 2005 for his video work Huangpu (collected in Hong Kong Museum of Art). He has also been invited in many residencies and workshops worldwide and is a contributor to the open microphones project of French-based research lab in audio art Locus Sonus (École Supérieure d’Art d’Aix-en-Provence, École Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Nice Villa Arson), as well as Advisor for the HK organization soundpocket. He published some of his works on monème, a platform that he has founded in June 2004.
