[English version below]

Felipe Maia travaille au Brésil sur l'usage des paredões, des gros murs d'haut-parleurs attachés aux voitures qui sont très répandus dans les banlieues des grandes villes.

Il réalise son terrain ethnographique surtout dans la ville de São Paulo où plusieurs soirées (des "bailes" ou des "fluxos") ont lieux dans les quartiers et des favelas de la ville. Dans ces évenements, les paredões se constituent en tant qu'un nœud important non pas seulement pour l'écoute des morceaux, mais aussi comme un dispositif en soi qui fedère des jeunes pendant des heures. D'autant plus remarquable, on observe tout un système de production musicale, professionalisation technique et économie souterraine autour de ces équipements.

La recherche proposée a comme objet les technologies audionumériques ainsi que le rôle des individus impliqués dans les espaces d'enquête : le compositeur/producteur musical, les propriétaires de ces dispositifs, le technicien responsable d'entretenir ces dispositifs, les DJs des soirées et le public qui s'y retrouve.

Felipe Maia works in Brazil on the use of paredões, sound systems attached to vehicles that are largely seen in the suburbs of big cities.

His ethnographic research is mainly focused in the city of São Paulo, where several block parties ("bailes" or "fluxos") take place in the underprivileged neighborhoods and favelas. In these events, the paredões play an important role not only as a listening equipment, but also as a device in itself gathering young people for hours. Moreover, there is a whole system revolving around these machines involving music production, technical professionalization and an underground economy.

This research focuses on these digital audio technologies as well as the role of individuals involved in the spaces where the main paredões actors are found: the composer/music producer, the paredões owners, the technician responsible for maintaining these devices, the DJs at the parties and the partygoers as well.

Known as the second largest rap producer market, behind the United States alone, France is also a space for scientific work on the genre since its first manifestations in the country. In this school, also comparable in depth or even breadth to American academic production - hip hop studies -, the sociologist Karim Hammou has a prominent place. This is due to his extensive research work, still ongoing, which culminated in 2012 in the book Une Histoire du Rap en France, published by the publisher La Découverte.

A proposta desta pesquisa é investigar, descrever e experimentar o acontecimento comunicacional, momento no qual a comunicação se faz plena pois se percebe o que se passa no entorno numa via multidirecional e polissêmica, sem verdades ou pré-juízos. O corpus desse escopo é a tríade fenômeno-comunicação-rede voltada para a música. A escolha primeira partiu dessa expressão artística, livre de conceitos e a prioris, cujas percepção e sensação são calcadas na subjetividade. Para realizar esta experiência foi preciso um processo que inserisse o pesquisador na pesquisa, mas não de maneira meramente empírica, e sim de maneira reflexiva e perceptiva. Para tanto, foi escolhido o metáporo, que será destrinchado ao decorrer do texto
