The Cdmc presents a season of encounters, seminars and day study sessions designed to counterpoint the views of specialists and professionals and to spotlight composers and performers. Focussing on topical aspects of the music scene, they are organised in collaboration with the main players of musical creation: ensembles, centres for creation, festivals, etc., as well as with those involved in research, the universities and conservatories. Dédicaces (Dedications): these are encounters featuring newly released books, discs or DVDs.
Venues, milieux and sound horizons - Towards an ecology of listening
Thursday 08 March 2012 - 00:00 to Friday 09 March 2012 - 00:00
Coordination Laurent Feneyrou
Sound always occurs in a venue, a concert hall, though also, more exceptionally, in situ and in places, open or closed, that are not a priori intended for music, that readily partake of natural models: there has been a long history of music in the open air, in gardens or within a landscape, by a lake, on a hill, even in an urban environment…
Now let us reverse the proposition: how would it be if the sound produced a place, revealed and configured a space?
This seminar intends, by focussing on the work of Salvatore Sciarrino and other composers, to explore these places, be they unassuming or permeated by a multiplicity of perspectives; these places, these venues as moments in the cycle of life, of the seasons and of the day, even of some cosmogony or mythology; these places as journeys, of the imagination, of the mind or of some private dramaturgy…
And these sounds that mark out a horizon are evidence of a distancing, a lontananza, as is so wonderfully put in Italian, of a suspended tension towards an elsewhere, another nucleus.
