eRikm worked from occidental cinema sound-tracks from a large range of media – K7, VHS, DVD and optical sound – as well as sound that he recorded in a movie theater. He is interested in the clichés, the tensions, the release, the noises and the whole scope of emotions resulting from his recordings.
“LUX” is a reflection on the identification of the spectator with actors or groups of population, including the potential of schizophrenic states that occur during cinema screenings (e.g. hallucination). His desire is to stimulate the listener to create his own new images from the sound: psychic decors, landscapes, lights. He selected the musical, spoken and noise sounds intuitively, while having in mind colored images from the sound, creating at the same time a social critique through the prism of popular cinema.
