Dialogue de l'ombre / Anthèmes 2 [CANCELED]
Dialogue de l'ombre double—taken from Soulier de satin by Claudel—is a back-and-forth between verses and transitions performed by the same musician. The verses are performed on stage “live”; the transitions were pre-recorded and played over loudspeakers. Opposed to the real and localized presence of certain elements is the imaginary, diffuse presence of others. Each verse is centered on a unique idea; the transitions carry us from one motif to another.
The piece of Boulez work also uses a much more sophisticated system based on a perceptive approach of the spatial sound which enables the auditors to clearly hear the sounds wherever they are, regardless of the place and number of loudspeakers.
