The art of listening

Sound fiction

The art of telling stories // 1 000 €

Headphones, loudspeakers, transistors, tuners, geolocation-based listening? For on minute, one hour or a whole night? Sound fiction renews our relationship with our world and to the people within it.


Prize « Human word archives » // 1 000 €

Exploring the human with sound. Making the human voice “alive and speaking”. This was what pioneers of recording wanted to promote. In the light of this dream, this documentary prize crowns the works that testify to human experience.


Prize « Field Recording » awarded by the Museum Reattu Arles // 1 000 €

How do we tuned in to the landscapes that we encounter ? What do we hear when we listen them of a new ear? On what premise do we explore territories and those who live within them?

« Pierre Schaeffer Discoveries »

Prize dedicated to the young authors // 500 €

A new generation seized the power of sound thanks to the arrival of new tools (audio-blogs, free software, podcasting, digital recorders, smartphones) which enabled democratic access. This generation begins its own revolution of listening. To these fascinated young people, Phonurgia Nova reserves a ``Pierre Schaeffer Prize`` (in homage to the incomparable sound and radio pioneer).
