Pierre Glorieux & Sophie Palmer

A meeting of the bassoon and flamenco dance

Pierre Glorieux Prepared bassoon
Sophie Palmer Flamenco percussion and dance
Raphael Favergeon Sound design

A musician and dancer perform on an island formed of found materials. Seeking balance, the scenery resonates to Flamenco rhythms in a trance-like conversation with the bassoon. From one scene to the next and one piece to another, the sounds mingle and tell the story of a meeting between a dancing body and an instrument searching for new textures. The listener is immersed in this musical journey, including classical musical traditions and traditional dances, sound discoveries and innovations that open up a timeless world.
