Residency at Camargo Foundation

IMG_3699

I will be in a residency at the beautiful Camargo Foundation in Cassis, France, from January 31 – February 13, 2020. During the stay I am working on a new piece for Florentin Ginot and his double bass project HowNow. The commission and a generous support for the creation phase comes from the Royaumont Foundation.

A new work composed for double bassist Florentin Ginot, member of Ensemble Musikfabrik Köln. At the core of this project is a balance act between the bassist, the audience and several objects in the concert space. The objects remain in hanging balance and are connected to the bow of the bassist and to several hands of audience members. Movements by audience members will influence the playing capacity of the bassist and have a direct influence on the sounding piece. This fragile assembly becomes an exterior body for the musician on stage, presenting a narration of dependence and mutual influence.

The premiere of the new work with project title Soif Idéale / Perfect Thirst will be September 5 in the Abbey of Royaumont, Asnières-sur-Oise, France.
