PROGRAM / Big Bang Antwerp 2018
Thursday 1 November 2018
Welcome to this sound igloo of copper climbing plants. Trumpets, tubas, trombones and so on, stretching above your head and woven into a roof of wind instruments. Five drivers come closer and conjure up a world of wonderful sounds. They control valves, blow and sigh, scrape and tap rhythms and sounds above your head and towards each other. The entangled pipes and tubes make their way towards 30 or so sound funnels. Spread around the room they embrace you with sound. The result is impressive. You find yourself at the heart of sound, completely submerged in a sound bubble. The house of copper pipes rears and wavers. Lying on your soft cushions you hear air masses, underground jungles, bubbling oceans, exotic islands and a far-off melody.
Spat’Sonore is a very special experience for anyone older than 5.
ELSA BIRGÉ, PHILIPPE BORD, NICOLAS CHEDMAIL, JORIS RÜHL & MAXIME MOREL music & arrangements
