I frame new environments under the influence of these drifting places. I question the surrounding sounds and their underlying musical dynamic, which is composed by accentuations, repetitions, falls and pauses. I approach this environment as a choreographic space where the sounds provide a dramatic frame and are translated into images and displays.
Encounters are also bringing my recordings beyond the simple portraits. I meticulously select the voices since they demonstrate hidden qualities. The intimate relationships that I built with my characters are translated via immediate reverse shots frames. I heighten the words as well as the bodies of my characters so that they fall within a complex geography with its hollows, its resonance and its history.
In my films the words of the characters resonate with the most diverse realities into multiples spaces. The temples of Angkor Wat filmed by phone, verbal jousting in Burkina Faso among teenagers, a symphony of horns in the Mekong Delta, are all realities that I use as soundboard."
