ROMAIN MULLER: ‘WE WANT TO PROPOSE ANOTHER APPROACH OF LISTENING SOUNDS AND MUSIC’
Have you ever mused upon sounds around you? Or have you ever stepped into the street to listen to beautiful birds’ melodies? Several years ago enthusiastic musicians from Strasbourg started to record street sounds and put it together. They already have got about 400 tracks from all over the world: India, Bulgaria, Greece, Peru etc. We want to propose another approach of listening sounds and music around us, Romain Muller, one of these founders, said. In March, I met with NAC Studio specialists and asked them about their project ‘Runny Noise’.
According to their official website, the idea of sculpting different sounds in one music composition came to JB Juszczak. While he was traveling around the world, he started to record everything: human steps, rainfall, car’s noise… And initially, melodies of nature were being taped by a portable audio recorder. Then, after coming back to France, he decided to continue this work and create a musical project with Romain.
What do you mean by melodies of nature, you would say. It can be everything! Sound of summer wind, speeches, voices, river flow… Each of these categories is processed in computer programs in order to be led in the same style and rhythm. Every sound is presented as a music road in the program. And I was so surprised when I first saw tens and hundreds of these different colorful roads: long and small… Amazing work has been done, and guys continue to make their project better.
— Our first live performances took place in 2018 when we just came together, JB said. — Tracks were played back in surround sound for a better immersion of the audience.
At this moment the band is preparing for their first world tour. Musicians plan to show their work not only in Alsace (France’s region) but also in other countries. The main message of that is sharing their own values and visions of music in general. It is a universal language, Romain asserted.
This universal language is completely understood by NAC Studio — a place, where all sounds are being analyzed and created into the final composition.
However, NAC specialists work not only for Runny Noise. In addition, they provide a big list of services such as recording, writing music, mixing, etc.
— Now our schedule is absolutely full of events, meets, and work, musicians said.
