Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

" "Klangfarben" means "colors of sound". After his works around poetry, Francois Cotinaud here makes a tribute to Arnold Schönberg and John Cage, through the acting of Francoise Purnode and nine musicians involved in soundpainting. He says: "Schoenberg was a fierce opponent of the idea that " serious " and " spontaneous " music are incompatible, but did advocate the notion of perfection in the work of art as the result of a logical and controlled process : " You have no feeling for harmony ", he allegedly told his pupil Cage to discipline him. The language of Soundpainting is a shortcut between this spontaneity and a more conceptual approach. With over a thousand signed gestures, and thousands of combinations at its disposal, it can either summon pre-existing material, forge links between the body's language and the music, or call on the performers'sensitivity and abundant ideas, so they are not deprived of the unfolding drama." "-Ayler
