Analyse de la composition de l'espace dans une œuvre acousmatique immersive de Jean Marc Duchenne

Abstract : In November 2019, an acousmatic work by Jean Marc Duchenne was premiered in Micadome, a 26 speakers cube installed at the Conservatory of Nice-University of Côte d'Azur for the creation and study of the composition of space specificities and its listening in immersive environments. The audience listening at the exact place where the composition is finalized, the creator extract a specific track of sound sources whose spatial play is given to the listener himself, with 3D physical sensors : a new type of interpretation of the musical space. For this purpose, a detailed analysis of this composition of spaces is realized with the Acousmographe (Ina-GRM software). This text explains the notation choices and shows how the notion of space in music can be translated into various concepts to be compared to more common musical parameters : scales, polyphony, chords, transitions, variations... building scenarios of perception, often linked to other dimensions of the musical discourse in foliated meanings. The project also explore clinical potentials of therapeutic mediation through music engulfment sessions for young visually impaired people with associated mental disorders. The immersivity offers them an unusual sensory framework of bodily perception, in sound extended reality.
