DE FRONT

DeFront_EnTete.jpg

The main idea behind this piece relies on a batch of texts based on the aggression processus among men and animals as well as the notion of frontality (related to intermediate and blurry zones of our physical and intellectual experience).The principle of the piece (hence the mention of the quatuor) is based upon the development, in concentric circles, of four groups or entities (1.clarinet/trumpet ; 2.percussion ; 3.string quintet ; 4. electronics) that gradually close up on the listener. This convergence is carried out by accumulation processes and meetings in which perception goes from individualized states to a sense of group.
