L'Établi refers to the hundreds of intellectual militants who, from 1967 onwards, were hired and worked in factories or docks. Robert Linhart was one of them, spending a year as a worker in the Citroën factory in Choisy. Ten years later, he decided to share his story. Poignant and precise, this account allows us to appreciate the production system, the surveillance and repression, the unequal balance of power between the bosses and the workers, whether they were French or immigrants. L'établi is also the French word for workbench at which an old worker touches up damaged pieces before being used. Today, L'Établi brings together composer Roque Rivas and director Julia Vidit.

The Musiques-Fictions collection merges a contemporary text, a musical creation, and the collective experience of immersive listening under an ambisonic dome. The musical creation is in perfect contact with the literary work. The language has all the intelligibility; the music has a space of its own. The Musiques-Fictions intend to renew the genre of radio fiction, the Hörspiel, the vigil, by going beyond the simple sound illustration of the story or the dialogue. Music-fictions where the image is not a screen.

Production IRCAM-Centre Pompidou. With the support of the Sacem.
