Residencia: Kevin Patton & Sophie Tassignon

EE.UU / Bélgica

Del 05 al 20 de febrero de 2023





We have been working on a project that sets the poetry of mid 20th century poet, Louise De Vilmorin, in an electroacoustic sonic environment combined with French chanson and rhythmic concepts from popular music. We hope to transform these compositions into a live performance approach.
