The sea “world of silence”? An idea deeply rooted in the collective unconscious… Yet it is an environment in which the weightlessness of the sea allows sound to travel thousands of kilometres, where hearing dominates sight.
The confinement parenthesis has created an “anthropic silence”. In this silence then emerges a song, that of the wild world, which uses sound to communicate and find its bearings. How to harmonize this sound territory with that of human activities, which are more and more invasive? To find out, I choose to take the public on a sensory odyssey, emphasizing the sound reality of the ocean. We will explore the Mediterranean coast and the open sea, from Corsica to Occitania, from confinement to the “next world”. On board a sailboat, we will meet scientists and committed men and women who seek to define a harmonious coexistence between man and nature.
