Royaumont Festival: artists in the garden

Marc Namblard audio-naturalist

In a forest, you hear the animals long before you see them. Marc Namblard, who has been guiding groups in the wilderness for a long time, knows this better than anyone else, since he is one of the most sought-after audio-naturalists in France, providing rare sounds for documentaries such as The Snow Panther. This Vosgian is able, with his extremely sophisticated microphones, to give a voice to the invisible. Thanks to him, the slightest alarm call of a frightened bird, the slightest hum of insects on the ground or the slightest croak of amphibians takes on the sharpness and the amplitude of a symphony.
Go for a walk with him, you will never have heard Royaumont and its surroundings like this!


Marc Namblard

* 2018 : Parent-child workshop “The Music of Birds” and concert “La Grande Volière” with Laurent Charles, Michel Doneda, Lionel Garcin, Violaine Gestalder and Alexandra Grimal

After graduating from an art school, Marc Namblard has been living and working as a naturalist guide, audio naturalist and sound artist in Lorraine since the end of 2000. He travels around France to listen and record the sound phenomena of nature: crickets singing, frogs croaking, wind, streams… All his work is marked by a double approach, both naturalist and musical, rational and intuitive. The very high standard of sound writing thus competes in his work with innovation and the rigor of naturalist observation.
