about

Ma est un terme japonais qui signifie : intervalle, espace, durée, distance. Il fait référence aux variations subjectives du vide qui relie deux objets, deux phénomènes séparés. L'album Ma s’est construit entre 2016 et 2018, il résulte du travail sonore de Méryll Ampe qui pratique essentiellement sa musique en live.. S’y retrouvent cheminement et processus, jouant avec des notions de matérialité,de détournement, d'arrêts sur images, d'instinct, d'inattendu, autant d’états qui l’intéressent dans sa construction de plans, de volumes et de formes.

Dans son travail sonore, elle établit des liens entre sa pratique musicale et plastique et puise dans des techniques directement liées à la sculpture : taillant dans la masse, modelant, ciselant, pour voir apparaître suspension, charge frictionnelle et jeu d’échos entre souvenirs et présent.

Méryll Ampe utilise des éléments acoustiques captés dans son quotidien, les sources sonores enregistrées, sont travaillées de manière empirique avec outils électroniques, analogiques, cassette et batterie... Son processus créatif interroge la matière qui évolue souterrainement, et en relief. A travers son intérêt permanent pour la rugosité, la porosité, la taille directe, elle renvoie à la "chair du son".

English

Ma is a Japanese word meaning: interval, space, duration, distance. It refers to the subjective variations of the empty space that binds two objects, two separate phenomena. The album Ma was created between 2016 and 2018, it is based on the sound work of Méryll Ampe who mainly practices her music live... Her creative path and processes can be heard there, playing with notions of materiality, distortion, still images, instinct, the unexpected, all of which are states that interest her when it comes to building planes, volumes and shapes.

She develops her sound through electronic field recordings and experimental music. She establishes links between her musical practice and her visual practice, using techniques directly linked to sculpture – to cut in to mass, to model, and to chisel using acoustic sound, digital sound processing and analogue tools (microphones, drum, K7, synthesizers). These allow her to generate echo, tensions, breaks and punctuation, through which she composes orchestrated and spatial tones. She invests myself in the places where she composes, tailoring tracks to the space and situation. And she conceives of improvisation as an uninterrupted sequence, revealing the immersive composition of space.

about

Méryll Ampe Paris, France

Méryll Ampe conceives sound as a medium to be sculpted in real time and improvises from analog sources oscillator, filters + drum machine.
All this to interrogate in a relentless way a dense and sonorous matter which evolves underground and in relief. Creating live different layers and playing with the interweaving of volumes,perspectives and dynamics, creates sharp and very raw materials.
