Atelier de Création Radiophonique
Par Olivier Capparos et Lionel Marchetti
« Ce que l’œil voit » est une pièce radiophonique d’exploration : la vision, le regard, la poésie de cette vision et de ce regard, y sont contés, à travers l’histoire de la médecine, de la littérature et du sens allégorique, souvent miraculeux et enchanteur, qu’on a accordé à l’œil.
Le contenu et l’expression sonore et musicale nous rappellent sans cesse que « voir » veut dire à la fois la caresse et le déchirement."

Olivier Capparos (1968) :
Instrumental and electro-acoustic composer, his work involves as well philosophy, litterature and, most obviously, music. Many of his works are focusing on the voice and its interpretation through loudspeakers.
As a writer, he published poetry, essays and short stories (reviews, monographies, booklets for cd’s...)
Graduate of the E.H.E.S.S.(Paris, 1996)
Master degree in philosophy Professor at the “Collège International de Philosophie” (2000), he teaches philosophy, history and art at several universities (Paris VII, VIII.. international symposiums...)

Winner of radiophonic and musical creations prizes : Radio France, WDR (Germany), La Muse en Circuit, SCAM...
For several years his work is mixed with Lionel Marchetti’s work : they composed and wrote many musical works and broadcasts...

He composed and conducted many instrumental works (for chamber orchestra (2005), and soli (voice (soprano), violin, piano...)
is a French composer of concrete music
an improviser (electronics, various analogic systems with modified speakers, REVOX reel-to-reel recorder…)
as well as a visual-sound artist, a writer and a poet
Whether his music is composed or improvised
the body has an important role (Lionel Marchetti danced with the university company Relyanse between 1986 and 1991)
To define his music, one can borrow Kenneth White’s saying :
« Concrete or abstract ?
I like abstraction where a memory of substance remains, concrete refined on the frontiers of emptiness. »
