Music for dancers release notes
The living need light, the dead need music
During more than 15 years, I composed and recorded music that is both cinematographic and dance related. I was connected to contemporary music during my stay in Lyon where I regularly went out to la maison de la danse. If I was usually happy of what I had seen, it was the music which stayed in my head for the rest of the night. And how the music and sound aggregate with the bodies on stage. I was fascinated and I always tried to incorporate that feeling to movement and dance to the pieces I wrote.
The four pieces of « music for dancers » grab element of rhythmic stability/instability and melodic elements.
Africa is my own vision of west african music and rhythm. Max and steve is a piece combining polyrhythm in a live-looping situation (guitar + synth). Music box brings acoustics instruments sonority and acoustic drums in an ever-evolving canevas. Prayer for Europe is a guitar sample reworked in a 3D sound table with multiple outputs.
