"RESTONS REVERENCIEUX" (2019) 

video / sound installation and optical theater

- a tribute to Boris Vian -

Je voudrais pas crever is a poem by the french poet and musician Boris Vian (1920-1959). On the occasion of his 60th death-day, the installation featured an appropriation and adaptation of a spoken version (with a minimalistic musical background) by Jean-Louis Trintignant from 2011.

 

The overlapping of multiple delayed versions of that recording, strangely gave birth to a new sound and musical partition. The ghostly echoes of the words transpose the work in a more abstract soundscape... by focusing on the lyrics, one will discover an inspiring and timeless (new) poem.

Turn the sound ON !
