Helmets, loudspeakers, transistor, tuner, geolocation-based listening? For two minutes, one hour or a whole night? The sound fiction renews our relationship to the world and to the others.

A new generation seized the sound thanks to the new tools (audio-blogs, free software, podcasting, digital recorders, smartphones) which democratized the access. This generation begins its own revolution of listening. To these fascinated young people, Phonurgia Nova tightens the ear and reserves a price `` Pierre Schaeffer`` (In hommage to the incomparable sound and radio pioneer).
