Simon Cacheux is a protean sound maker, working as a sound artist, a musician and a sound designer.
His sound creations, often designed as site specific, can be heard in numerous places (Museum of Natural History in Paris, Borély Museum in Marseille, Historical Museum of Marseille, Centre for Space Culture near Lyon, and so on). Be it as a support to an exhibition scenography, or as an autonomous sound piece, his creations dive into sound textures and micro-events within them. Trained with Louis Dandrel, Simon developed a praxis centred on the micro-narratives that emerge in the sounds themselves. Greatly in uenced by field-recording, drone and noise music, he focuses on the way embryonic narratives are created from blending textures and variations of sound characteristics. Deeply interested in technology, he explores the possibilities of analog synthesizers, DIY devices, handmade sound processing softwares and field recordings.
Simon Cacheux has completed a 3 years cycle at the École Nationale Supérieure Louis Lumière in the Sound department. He also gives sound design classes at the École de Condé, an art school in Paris, where he lives and works.
