Le musicien Louis Schild et la chorégraphe Claire Dessimoz unissent leurs forces à un collectif musical prêt à tout. Après avoir composé une partition inspirée des tarentelles en 2019, le joyeux collectif compose une pièce scénique qui se glisse entre les traditions du sud de l’Italie et les musiques contestataires, entre concert, spectacle et sarabande. Le paysage devient l’horizon de rêves colorés et les sons comme les corps orchestrent la bande-son d’un renversement possible : un nouvel hymne à la joie endiablé.

News: Duo Genthon_Marchetti on tour!

Phasme, piece for speaker, violin, synthesizer and low frequency amplifier

Anouck Genthon, violon & Lionel Marchetti, synthesizer

The Genthon_Marchetti duo works on a composition that takes space into account as one of the essential vectors in the sense that an acoustic response, through the arrangement of loudspeakers and sound volumes, becomes the very substratum on which the music will naturally rest. Inventing a form of duet in which the body of the violin itself seems to melt into the plasticity of the synthetic sounds, the two instrumentalists build, by subtly staging the loudspeaker projection, a musical work insisting on spatial emanation from a focal point – like a single eye, a lighthouse, a beacon that would indicate the path of an enchanting myth, or at least a direction to be considered as a life line, a magnetic pole.

News: Recueil des miracles – Palazzo Butera Palermo

Le Recueil des Miracles, Open-air concert 🎼

21.07.2022 20:30-21:30

Palazzo Butera, via Butera 8, Palermo

Le Recueil des Miracles is an ensemble. Drawing freely from the effects of a tarantella, the musicians engage us with a desire to listen together. Over the course of the concert, strangeness and discomfort are embraced, leading to a shared release. «First, there was a desire to look at sound and music and their role in possession rituals. We looked at Ernesto de Martino’s work on Tarentismo and the recordings made with Diego Carpitella in 1959. We discover how sound can be a real factor of social cohesion and how, should it be amputated, popular rituals would disintegrate, giving way to misunderstood follies and uprooted crises of madness. When it came time to attempt a performative form, we started with the idea of taking a first step and working exclusively with sound. We started with a very simple idea: to take the bagpipe, a traditional southern Italian instrument, and imitate its shrill timbre with different instrumentalists. We have since moved away from it, but this work has been the basis for anchoring the essence of the project».
