In this sound installation, four speakers attached to metallic shafts seem to immerge from the ground as if to impose themselves upon the visitor. They stream a musical composition made of biophonic activities recorded in the soils of spoil tips 11/19 and their surroundings in Loos-en-Gohelle, North of France. These sounds express the loss of biodiversity caused by soil pollution but also the transformation undergone by the natural ecosystems as a result of human activity which all too often totally ignores life’s equilibrium.
