The dangerous freedom given to artists to create.

The Association PRESQUE RIEN for its fifth edition, offers artists who desire to create a work with Luc Ferrari’s sound archives – or to use them in their project – to consult the list of 18 sounds, for listening to the available sound files. These sound files were collected during the ongoing digitization of Luc Ferrari’s magnetic archives.

The « PRESQUE RIEN Prize » is open to creators without limitation of age or nationality. The « PRESQUE RIEN Prize » is awarded to the author of an artistic creation, using sounds from Luc Ferrari's analogue archive. The main concern in this work should be the reflection on the freedom left to the creators to invent the work of their desire. The first prize is endowed with the amount of 2,000 €, the second of 1,500 € and the third of 1,000 €.
