Nicolas Tourney is developing two types of workshops: Au Milieu du Silence and Ensemble Auracle.
As an extension of the research initiated by John Cage and Pauline Oliveros, the workshop Au Milieu du Silence explore direct perception through a rigorous methodology, thus offering tools that other musicians and sound artists can use in their creative process.
The method developed in this workshop was published in French under the title Au Milieu du Silence (Snow in Water Press, 2021).
Ensemble Auracle is another kind of workshop, focused on communication and interpretation of experimental pieces composed since 1945. It is also a contemporary classical music ensemble made up of non-musicians and audience-performers.
