Yann Gourdon

As hurdy-gurdy player, composer and sound artist, Yann Gourdon looks at vibratory fields and sound perception as a medium. He predominantly focuses on acoustic phenomena that have a dynamic relationship with their environment – architecture / landscape. In parallel he learned to play traditional music from Auvergne in France by listening to field recordings and currently conducts research on this repertoire within the collective La Nòvia. He is also member of the band France (with Jérémie Sauvage on bass, and Mathieu Tilly on drums) and he plays with Antez in the duo Vacuum. Throughout every aspect of his work he deals with sound quality.
