"Rainier Lericolais decided to monitor the life of the museum when it was closed, drawing his inspiration from the nature of the collections, as well as its scientific and cultural project. However, what he has produced is not a literal illustration of the collections of the LaM using sound or music, but rather an offbeat exploration based on the theme of background noise.
Stopping at certain works in the course of the conversation and interviews, Rainier Lericolais tackles them by drawing on his data bank of sounds: fragments of voice, bits of overheard conversations, audio “cut-outs” in the sound texture of a place or a piece of music. The artist intends to produce an album consisting of twelve tracks of sounds that can be downloaded or
podcast from the museum’s website. Like an audio CD, this album will provide a metaphorical, sentimental and non-narrative commentary, in the form of an “audio stroll” around the collections in the months before the reopening of the LaM."
