JEAN-YVES BOSSEUR

Musique Vertes (listening session)

Fri 21.10
Provinciaal Domein Dommelhof, Toekomstlaan 5, 3910 Neerpelt

In 1982 the French musicologist and composer Jean-Yves Bosseur published the visionary album 'Musique Vertes'. The basis was formed by Christian Armengaud's research on musical instruments in the Aix-en-Provence region, where there was a long tradition of instruments made with plants and other organic material. Bousseur worked with young and old residents of the area to create a collection of recordings where musical interplay and interaction with the natural sounds from the environment take precedence over technical playing skills.

The album was re-released this year. During the festival Bosseur himself presents a listening session in optimal conditions.
