Festival Belluard Bollwerk International

Festival 2018

Félix Blume

(Ciudad de Mexico, Narbonne)


Very short silent films full of sounds

An empty can is pushed around by the wind In the Chilean desert. A donkey ambles through a field in the South of France. A man trudges through the snowy mountains of Bolivia. A train announcement echoes through a Swiss railroad station. Each of these videos has a commonality: Félix Blume and his microphone, doggedly capturing wild tracks that will later be used in the soundscapes of some film.
A sound engineer for over a decade, Félix Blume realized one day that while hunting for sounds, he also produces images that are often absurd, poetic, crazy of even funny. During the Belluard Festival, the artist creates a daily video within the town of Fribourg, letting us perceive the city with different eyes – or in this case, different ears.

Félix Blume will also host a sound recording workshop.
