Borrowed from Latin, the Cochlea is a snail and also the spiral-shaped hearing organ. It is the inner ear with its vestibular system, which allows us to maintain balance in our movement.
This piece incorporates solo saxophone, voice, and recorded mixes but also a body in space. It is constructed around two central themes :
• Breath, one breath, one voice, one that animates the saxophone and arouses great passion, more primal than language, one that drives and inspires us but also the concrete resonance of a diamond needle in vinyl grooves or even the roar of an air compressor,
• Music in the body or how being absolutely engaged by the sound that we hear and/or one we produce animates us more than anything.
Cochlea or how what goes into our ears, our intimate history of music, moves us in every sense of the word.
A way to explore the sensory and poetic dimensions of breath that inspires us and moves us to a joyful and unique imagination.
