Félix Blume (France, 1984) is a sound artist and sound engineer. He currently works and lives between Mexico and France.
His work focuses on listening, inviting us to sonic experiences, leading to a different perception of the surrounding. He uses sound as a basic material in sound pieces, videos, actions and installations. His process is often collaborative, working with communities, using the public space to experiment and present his works.
He is interested in myth and their contemporary interpretation, in the dialogue between nature and humans, in what voices told us beyond the words.

His sound pieces were broadcast in radios from all over the world as in different spaces such as Centre Pompidou y Musée d’Orsay (France). He has awarded with the “soundscape” prize for his last video-piece Curupira, creature of the wood and the “Pierre Schaeffer” prize for his work Los Gritos de México at the Phonurgia Nova Awards.
In 2018, he has done a sound installation in the waves for the Thailand Biennale, Rumors from the sea, composed of hundred of bamboos and flutes.
He has participate in international festivals and exhibitions as LOOP Barcelona (2015), CCCB Barcelona (2015), Tsonami Arte Sonoro Chile (2015, 2018), Fonoteca Nacional Mexico (2016), Ex Teresa Mexico (2016), CENTEX Chile (2017), CTM Berlin (2017), Belluard Festival (2018), Arts Santa Monica Barcelona (2018) and Thailand Biennale (2018) among others.
