Ephémère at Studio Loos
Thursday, 13th April 2017 – 20:00
Akane Takada will perform a series of short piano pieces to accompany soundtracks of water. I had two residencies in Switzerland (in 2016 and in 2017) to archive the sound of fresh water running down the mountains. Water that collects in basins on trails and in villages, clean and there for everyone to drink. All of these small fountains or basins have a characteristic sound, a different pitch, or even a melody.
I analyzed the spectrum of these recordings, using her ears and technology, and wrote the piano pieces especially for, and in collaboration with, Akane Takada.
This work is supported by IGNM-VS / Forum Wallis because of its artistic and environmental importance in a time in which water, and “the right to water” is increasingly becoming part of a political debate.
When: Thursday April 13, 2017 at 20:00 o’clock.
