The project Voix des Anges is our most significant contribution to Mons 2015. In collaboration with numediart, Transcultures, Le Manège, Musiques Nouvelles and of course the Mons 2015 Foundation, we have helped in the elaboration of a unique platform. This platform, called compostela.io, enabled the real-time and spontaneous geo-localisation of Mons citizens, through their smartphones, within two art pieces: an installation and a series of performances. The engagement of those citizen was demonstrated on an interactive map of Mons, where their location would show up and their paths were tracked in real-time. From these pathways, sound textures were generated, both in the earplugs of their smartphones and on the site of the artistic rendition. Voix des Anges has been exhibited as an installation at Café Europa during Citysonic 2015 and performed with Musiques Nouvelles at Bozar on Sep. 19 and Arsonic on Sep. 20.
