Thanks to the great team at the Quinconces theater in Le Mans, Serge Teyssot-Gay, Laure Saint-Hillier, Christophe Hauser and I were able to continue the work started by our dear friend Etienne Bultingaire. The show is now called FLYING CARPET. It’s full of incredible images and sounds.
Always a pleasure when a new piece comes to life after so many months spent writing it. In this case, Mr Barbe bleue, a pocket opera for the baroque ensemble “Les Monts du Reuil”, with staging by Juan Kruz Diaz de Garaio Esnaola.
A highlight of 2015 was working with Decibel in Perth on OCCAM HEXA II, a new piece for flute, clarinet, viola, cello and percussion co-signed by Eliane Radigue and myself. Wonderful experience making this music come to life with such a fine and receptive group of musicians. Thanks to Cat, Lindsay, Aaron, Tristen, and Stuart !!
We gave our second concert with Marc Nammour last Sunday at Royaumont. The concert was filmed, and will be visible soon on mmediatv.com. In the meantime, here is a little cut from last year’s concert at the Avignon Festival.
