Dein Gesang is a musical portrait of Paul Celan, signed François Meïmoun for two female voices, Élise Chauvin and Marie Kobayashi, three percussions and a solo alto, Christophe Desjardins. For this ambitious project, everything is about translation, about interpretation, about a dialogue between two languages and two voices. "There isn’t a page, or hardly, that doesn’t contain a summons. Putting a poem to music, not only searching through the syllables and alliterations, is also searching through its summons." In this concert with the Percussions de Strasbourg, the composer and researcher Carmine Emanuele Cela endeavors to transform our models for listening: the electronics are diffused in instruments located around the audience. Inside-Out stages immersion and the localization of sound sources simultaneously. Finally, the monumental tomb by Alberto Posadas for alto, interpreted by Christophe Desjardins, completes the portrait dedicated to him throughout ManiFeste-2017. Posadas’ attraction to fractal objects, to their auto-similarity attributes that create a form, comes into contact with a Baroque process here: the double is not simply ornamentation, but the intensification of raw material.
