MÉMOIRE [DÉDALE] GÉNÉTIQUE COMMISSION FOR AUGUSTIN SOULARD
PAINTINGS, MUSICAL ILLUSTRATIONSGOUACHE
In collaboration with Augustin Soulard, GMEA - Centre National de Création Musicale Albi-Tarn
A series of gouaches imagined following an invitation by Augustin Soulard whose project was to reconcile solo and collective performance in a hybrid sound piece in which the central point is improvisation. These ten portraits, accompanied by a garden and an abstract composition, served as a foundation for the ten musicians to reflect on their music, to push the limits of their instruments, to imagine a relationship between image and sound.
The musical performance was performed as part of a residency for four composers at GMEA - Centre National de Création Musicale Albi-Tarn on Saturday 6 August 2022. "The four selected composers have been commissioned to write a 15-minute piece for 10 musicians. The works can be written in traditional, graphic or verbal notation.
Thank you to the GMEA team for their great hospitality, to all the performers for their extraordinary work, and to Augustin Soulard for giving me this great opportunity!
