PRELUDE AT LA NUIT D'ANTIGONE
The pianist Nathalie Négro, artist associated with Sciences Po Aix during the year 2017/18, built her intervention around a corpus of emblematic works of the twentieth century repertoire. These works were the support of a work around the rhythm (Clapping music by Steve Reich), the polyphonic vocal practice (Story by John Cage and Gertrude Stein) and the score, from his writing to his interpretation (Stripsody by Cathy Berberian).
Practice and creation were also addressed in this project. The eight women involved in the adventure offered their own documentary sound material, in the form of political slogans, Japanese, Mexican, or taken from May 68 and Arab Spring ... From this material is engaged a creative exploration around the musicality of words and the rhythmic power of these scansions.
On the program of this presentation: Story by John Cage on a text by Gertrude Stein and Clapping music by Steve Reich followed by the screening of a film directed on this experience by Clémence Plenet, one of the students, under the supervision of Olivier Stalla, sound director and Octavia de Larroche, director.
