CREATION 1999

important + Vertical emotion


Suspended by an outsized pendulum, two acrobats alternately beat the hide of an immeasurable drum. Like a heartbeat, the rhythm flows. Filled with electrical music like escaped from a medieval techno parade, the rhythmic cortege melts into the crowd. On ground level, the wave of drummers gives colour to the rhythm and the horde advances like the tide at equinox to the traditional meeting point of the city. Suddenly, a cluster of violinists appear in the sky balancing tentatively, suspended by an airborne structure. A melody sparkles and plays with the weight of the drummers… The magic fusion of an intense moment… It rains violons… Naturally, we arrive at the traditional meeting point which has accommodated throughout time the important moments of the city. The melody is lanced and flirts with the weight of the Tambours… Vertigo… A magic fusion takes place where the lyric singer gives tone to the trapezist. Les Tambours stand back, we hold our breath… Lâcher de Violons is resolutely baroque. Tense chords and harmonious curves play along the hazardous moves of the mobile's beams. Captivating music and breathtaking voice marry the classical esthetics inspired by the violin with Calder's naive modern delirum.
