Semaine du Neuf: Les Percussions de Strasbourg… Ghostland of another kind

Entrevue réalisée par Alain Brunet
Genres et styles : expérimental / contemporain

renseignements supplémentaires

Les Percussions de Strasbourg is a pioneering group in the world of contemporary music, percussion-wise as you’d expect. Founded in 1962 by Jean Batigne, the French ensemble has become a veritable institution on an international scale, simultaneously presenting several concerts across the planet, including Ghostland, for the first time in Montreal as part of the Semaine du Neuf organized by Groupe Le Vivier. This immersive work by composer Pierre Jodlowski is based on the idea of the ghost. It involves 4 percussionists performing on drums and virtual instruments, joined by a puppeteer, all accompanied by an interactive light, sound and video device. In this case, the ghost is evoked in multiple symbolic dimensions. The stage becomes not just a performance space, but also “an ambiguous place and an infinite space, essentially destined to see the birth of a kind of sound and visual ritual that itself becomes an object to be perceived”. To better understand the ins and outs of this project, the artistic director of Les Percussions de Strasbourg, Minh-Tâm Nguyen, talks to us on video about Ghostland and the institution he heads. The Percussions de Strasbourg is a unique and highly original institution.
