Félix Blume― Artist
Félix Blume (France, 1984) is a sound artist and sound engineer. He currently works and lives between Mexico and France. His work is focused on listening, inviting us to live sonic experiences that enable a different perception of the surrounding. He uses sound as a basic material in sound pieces, videos, actions and installations. His process is often collaborative, working with communities, using public space as the context within which he explores and presents his works. He is interested in myths and their contemporary interpretation, in human dialogues both with inhabited natural and urban contexts, in what voices can tell beyond words.
