Le Petit Cirque is a complex sound object made of wood, plastic, strings, springs and fragility. A mere breath can set it vibrating. Small microphones draw resources from its interior. Le Petit Cirque is a circus. Its handling is perilous, the danger of falling ever-present. Le Petit Cirque is made from odds and ends, salvaged material and cheap gadgets, but never relies on enecdote. Sound emerges from mise en scène. Action nourishes sound and sound gives new meaning to action. Improvisation and the chance of mechanics. This theater of sound objects explores two distinct and interacting concepts. The first is how stereotypical circus imagery alter one's perception of the performance's musical aspect. The second, and more abstract, is how sound allows the spectator to see these theatrical situations from a different perspective.
