WHAT TO EXPECT

Habitat Sonore is an intimate listening space designed to accommodate up to 10 people. This small capacity enhances total immersion into the sound world of artists from here and elsewhere. The experience unfolds in near darkness, which helps to emphasize the sound. We invite you to settle in comfortably, let your mind wander, close your eyes if you wish, and be carried away by a unique and captivating auditory journey.

"High-quality sound experiences without visual 'bling' are very rare. This one was amazing."

"The concept is really good with a small intimate room and high-quality sound. A true moment of pleasure."

"The joy of surrendering to music without any other distractions."

Sonorium: Daft Punk and their album Random Access Memories

The story of a masterpiece of contemporary pop music. (Re)discover the album decrypted by its creators in all its immersive glory in our Habitat Sonore listening room, in relaxing conditions and ambiance for an exceptional listening experience.

For over 10 years, Daft Punk has placed the final piece in its discographic venture with Random Access Memories.

With 5 Grammy Awards and instant triumph, a worldwide hit (Get Lucky), incredibly precise production, and prestigious collaborations (Pharrell Williams, Julian Casablancas, Giorgio Moroder, etc.), this album has left a lasting impression and established the duo as a major figure in contemporary pop.

For the first time since their separation in 2021, Daft Punk themselves, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, tell the story of this album to Rebecca Manzoni.

A creation by Sonorium, in partnership with the PHI Centre and with the support of France inter.

EPHEMERAL PROGRAM:
MOOD RING
by KALLITECHNIS

Mood Ring by Kallitechnis

“I wanted MOOD RING to be an immersive portal into familiar scenes of love and romance. For the mix, it meant emphasizing the textures in the songs to create a depth that allows you to feel the music as a 3D experience. With eyes closed, I wanted the songs to feel like rooms that listeners could enter, just as if they could step into a time capsule and revisit similar snapshots from their own memories. The spatial mix made this sensation possible through the intentional placement of certain textures in space. I welcome you to MOOD RING and hope you meet a version of yourself in these colours.”
