Éclats | Noir

Pierre-Luc Lecours

Éclats | Noir has been performed in Brussels, Crest and Montréal…

The starting point for this “éclats” was a cello recording session with musician Émilie Girard-Charest. These basic sound materials are joined by sounds from a modular synthesizer and field recordings made in the Brussels area. The three sonic protagonists engage in dialogues of opposition, fusion, and metamorphosis, tracing a path through various materials in mutation, each in turn becoming the lead character. This piece marked the beginning of experiments with rapports between soundscapes and instrumental / electronic materials in order to explore possible aesthetic, symbolic and energetic interactions.

[English translation: François Couture, v-20]


Éclats | Noir [Shards | Black] was realized in 2018 at the Métamorphoses d’Orphée studio of Musiques & Recherches (Ohain, Belgium) and was premiered on October 28, 2018, at Théâtre Marni (Brussels, Belgium) as part of the festival L’Espace du son. It was commissioned by Musiques & Recherches. Thanks to Émilie Girard-Charest (recorded cello), everyone at Musiques & Recherches, Myriam Boucher for listening several times, and the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ).
