"Musicians of the Earth"
Since the dawn of time, music is an imitation or an exaltation of nature. But it has now become a raw material of our daily sonic environment.
This 4th edition of the "Detours de Babel" festival invites us to discover how musical art appropriates nature, acoustic ecology and environmental issues in order to reveal some hidden aspects, new sounds, raise some exciting issues, not only technical and scientific, but also artistic and sensitive, as well as the link of man to his environment.
In this edition, these "Musicians of the Earth" are featured within no less than 21 new creations, more than 60 rendez vous, indoor , but also in public spaces, museums and heritage sites, gardens, parks and natural areas...
COMPOSER LE MONDE is a journey into contemporary music at the crossroads of world cultures.
This book-DVD is the result of ten years of works (photos, texts, interviews) and contains contributions from composers, performers, musicologists and cultural actors.
