Cors et cris

Upon discovering electronics after spending the 1980s using tapes, the composer Gilbert Amy is particularly interested in horns and in the possibilities made available by processing the spectrum.

Florence Baschet endeavors to let the audience hear an inaudible voice, that of the La Muette (lit. The Mute). The author, Chahdortt Djavann, who lives under Iranian mullahs, wrote the tale that inspired Bachet's work. This tale tells the story in Persian, of a woman who "overcomes her liberty with her silence".
