Before the industrial revolution, people would regulate their daily activities according to the sounds in the natural world around them.
When the church bell rang the midday angelus, lunchtime had arrived. And then, throughout the centuries, the auditory environment changed, diversified and amplified, finally becoming the urban din of our modern cities. But the last few years have seen a sonic (r)evolution, and the development of a new profession: sound design.
This film presents the ways and means through which the sounds in our daily lives are conceived and constructed, and the needs and requirements they satisfy… with some surprising discoveries!

L’empire des sons

"Avant la révolution industrielle, les gens trouvaient leurs repères quotidiens dans les sons que produisait la nature.
Et puis, au fil des siècles, l'environnement sonore s'est enrichi, diversifié, amplifié jusqu'à atteindre le brouhaha dans les villes. Mais depuis quelques années, nous assistons à une autre évolution (révolution ?) : la naissance d'un nouveau métier : le design sonore. Ce film raconte comment et par qui les sons de notre vie quotidienne sont conçus et ""construits"", à quels besoins ils correspondent… Des découvertes surprenantes !"
