explosion is a short piece for analog feedback generated by bringing together piezoelectric microphones and small speakers or “exciters” (along with a few ordinary objects like silverware, knitting needles, metal rods, a saw...). As the title indicates, the proximity of these small elements results in a sudden, intense release of massive energy.

An enormous, forceful wave of sound engulfs the space - overwhelming, overpowering. The noise is almost unbearable - or perhaps it is exhilarating. In any case, it continues unrelentingly.
On and on, always the same extreme sonic pressure, the same acoustic damage. And yet... if we allow ourselves to be drawn in, beyond the all-powerful surface, we notice that the sound-forms
are always changing, shifting, new; and that within the wave, inside the noise, are unsuspected depths of clarity and purity: we are confronted with - and submerged within - the ever-renewing manifestations of sheer, raw, primal energy.

Recorded live on October 9, 2018 at the TAP (Théâtre Auditorium de Poitiers, France).
