After Claude Debussy
Claudine Simon (prepared piano) and Christian Sebille (electronics) both have a relationship with musical writing, even if their training and careers have taken dissimilar paths. Claudine Simon, diverting the instrument she has always played, questions her intimate relationship with the piano. As for Christian Sebille, seeking to rediscover the pleasure of immediate instrumental play, he develops controlled electronic lutherie.
The exploration of the timbres inside the piano constitutes the sound material of the transformations operated by the electronics. The improvisation is built through the dialogue between the two musicians thanks to the coming and going of sounds and musical proposals.
Then emerge reminiscences, evanescent phantoms between the materials and sonic features of three preludes by Claude Debussy. These quotations form the perspective axes of the walk. The landscape changes and metamorphoses between the thickness of the sounds, the memories that form our memory and the discovery of a never-before-seen panorama. We await the next angle and the surprise of another perspective.
GMEM - Centre national de création musicale
Claudine Simon is developing a sound creation work that focuses on experimenting with the instrument and the capabilities of the piano. She conceives performances that allow her to question her relationship to the instrument by deconstructing the representations associated with it.
Christian Sebille is a composer and artistic director of the GMEM in Marseille. He works on the realization of sound installations in situ, in particular within the framework of a series entitled Miniatures. The place of sound capture is linked to the place of its diffusion in a ratio of space compression (reduction of the diffusion space in relation to the capture space) and temporal reduction (ratio of capture time / diffusion time). Moreover, he works on the concrete sound and on the capacity of the material to be in itself its own diffuser (the instrumental object). The radiation of the material and the movement of the object (sound) play with each other.
