Le parfum des femmes — Das Perfüme der Frauen

Trois nouvelles sonores sur le thème de la migration
AVTR 011
2000

This cycle of sonic stories has been conceived by Chantal Dumas on the course of a long stay in Europe. Otherwise, she wouldn’t have thought to talk of migration. You have to be in the middle of things, feel them to become sensitive to them. In “Le parfum des femmes,” first solo album from Chantal Dumas, speech is embodied through perception. Sound holds a wealth of data, informing the listener as to the time, the action, the places. To be true, sounds here suggests images which the listener is free to interpret and appropriate. Words are always prominent here, but in these pieces, meaning weaves around sonic landscapes, music and text. And thus a story is told through a round trip inside multiple narrative threads. The perfume of women was awarded the 1st prize at the EAR International Competition (Hungary) and also at the Phonurgia Nova International Radio Competition (France) in 1997.
