Then on the meeting point between visual arts/sound creations. Between rare documentary archives of creation, these programs constituted the aesthetic premises of a little explored territory, at the beginning of the 1990s. The history of sound in contemporary art… More than twenty years later, this unedited series will be the object of a conference and shared listening, and broadcasting of  brief sound extracts from its program : Shared senses, a history of photography and sound: adventures of time; Photography listens to sound, sound environment and photography; Musicality of images; The seeds of voice, the seeds of photography; Photographs without a view. National Institute of Audio-visual, Bry-sur-Marne, 1993.
