Composer - Sound artist


Caroline Boë is a French sound artist and a composer.
Born in 1963 in Vaucluse, she lives and works in Marseille (France).

Since 2013, she has dedicated herself to sound art research-creation. Currently a doctoral artist-researcher in the PRISM laboratory (Aix-Marseille-University / CNRS), her research area concerns noise pollution, relational art and web-art.

Its ecological commitment directs its work towards environmental art, sound ecology, and the polluted soundscape.

She is recognized for her sound installations (at GMEM / CNCM, at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris) and for her performances for graphic scores (at the Musée des Beaux-arts in Marseille, at the Cité Radieuse Le Corbusier).

Her collaboration with Tunisian artists Selma and Sofiane Ouissi for the choreographic show Laaroussa (Marseille European Capital of Culture 2013) and then meetings with musicologist Christine Esclapez and sound artist Peter Sinclair upset her vision of musical composition. This is how she oriented her research towards the soundscape.

A SACEM prize for the promotion of symphonic music was awarded to her in 2016.

From 1995 to 2013, she composed several contemporary live performance music (theater, choreographies, poetry-opera with Fany Tirel, Didier Berjonneau, Bruno Mallet, Christophe Boulanger and Jean-Pierre Lemesle, Régine Géraud) and has produced numerous musical installations for collective exhibitions of contemporary art. It was also the time of his musical research with birdsong and sensory journeys in the dark with Didier Berjonneau.

From 1987 to 1995, within the framework of the sound post-production company Paris Dièse of which she was the manager, she composed commissioned music for radio (France Musique, France Culture) and for television (CNN International, Rai Uno , Arte, la 5, Canal +, France 3, France 2, TF1).
