"Walking with Bisons" follows Iégor Reznikoff into the cave of Arcy in Burgundy, France, exploring natural resonances of painted caves and prehistoric rituals. The piece is prolonged by a collaborative sounding out of SAVVY's physical and radiophonic space together with Alberto de Campo and Hannes Hoelzl.
Iégor Reznikoff, Professor Emeritus at the Philosophy Department of the University of Paris X (Nanterre), has worked in many fields related to sound, music and acoustic archaeology. His work — encompassing architectural and corporal resonance, sound therapy, ethnomusicology, and ancient music practices — is credited with helping to create new concepts and approaches in sound anthropology. Amongst other things, he has worked extensively on resonance in Palaeolithic caves and caverns.
"Walking with Bisons" integrates sounds recorded by Rockethouse Productions (Matt Thompson & David Hendy).
