Charles Amirkhanian walks with French sound poet, Bernard Heidsieck, through the streets of Paris where Heidsieck had recorded the sounds that were incorporated into his composition “Carrefour De La Chausse D'Antin.” Starting outside the bank where Heidsieck worked for many years, and passing past the cafes, prostitutes, theaters, and department stores, the names and sounds of which were included in his long text-sound composition, Heidsieck describes his work and comments on how the city has changed. Part commentary and part travelogue, this interview will be of interest to anyone who wants to know more about Heidsieck’s or his home town of Paris France.
