Résonances manifestes – Hubert Gendron-Blais

Sala Rossa

February 18, 2019


An experimental music piece

composed from sounds of recent demonstrations in Montreal

Résonances manifestes, a comprovised piece based on a sonic score composed of field recordings from various demonstrations that shook the streets of Montreal in the past years, will be performed for the first time February 18 at Sala Rossa. The project is the musical expression of the process of research-creation of Hubert Gendron-Blais (Matralab Ph.D Candidate), at the confluence of music, philosophy and politics, aiming to understand how sound and music contribute to the formation of affective communities.

The piece will be interpreted by the Devenir-ensemble, an assemblage of ten musicians from Montreal who will improvise from the audio score not to represent the ambiance of these demonstrations to the public, but rather to make feel this subtle mix of passion and uncertainty that characterizes the affective intensity of these singular moments.  https://soundcloud.com/devenir-ensemble


The concert, supported by the Matralab, is part of the off-season series of the Suoni per il popolo festival. More infos (and tickets): https://www.facebook.com/events/317508728861412/
