Helmut Lachenmann, l'histoire à vif
Helmut Lachenmann (b. 1935), one of the most influential personalities of musical creation today, is the father of instrumental concrete music. Mutation of sound material and musical practice, "electronics" without electricity, "smart instruments" without technology, a rupture with all philharmonic habits—ways of doing and listening—for a work that is inscribed, loudly and clearly, in the narrative of history. The history is that of West Germany before the reunification with its norms, its student movements, and their radicalization, turning to combats in the streets and violent acts.
For the release of Laurent Feneyrou’s book De lave et de fer (Éditions mf), an encounter where music, art history, film history, social and political history, and philosophy intermingle.
Encounter moderated by Igor Contreras
with Anne Steiner, Patrick Javault, Martin Kaltenecker, Laurent Feneyrou
Organization: Laurent Feneyrou (Analysis of Musical Practices team IRCAM-STMS)
