fortepian totalny

sobota, 27 października, godz. 19:30

Urodzona w Paryżu w 1964 klasycznie wykształcona pianistka, która wykorzystuje konstrukcję fortepianu (klawisze, struny, pudło rezonansowe) totalnie, czyniąc z niego żywy, wibrujący organizm. Współpracuje z takimi muzykami, jak Michel Doneda, Alessandro Bosetti, Olivier Benoit, Catherine Jauniaux, Phil Minton, czy Christine Wodraska. Ten sam estetyczny świat nienarracyjnych, wielowymiarowych i delikatnych brzmieniowo poszukiwań dzieli z takimi artystami, jak Jean Pallandre, Jérôme Noetinger i Lionel Marchetti, John Butcher, Axel Dörner, Erik M, czy Ikue Mori.

Sophie Agnel – piano

born in Paris in 1964 and classically trained, escaped from jazz (drawn away by the too strict treatment of harmony), Sophie Agnel boards the piano from every sonic angle this musical vessel can offer: keys, strings & board are simultaneously apprehended, in a mixed procedure (as we say of painting techniques) that would be understated if it was reduced to the Cagean definition of the prepared piano. Considering the instrument – that she extends with several accessories, paper cups, balls or strings – as a poetic supplier of anamorphic textures, the musician takes it to be an equal match to the wider diversity of musical systems, whatever the craft they where conceived in (from physiological to electro-acoustic). We would then no longer be surprised to notice her understandings with Michel Doneda and to find her to the side of the wet saxophone of Alessandro Bosetti, of the acoustified electric guitar of Olivier Benoit, of the voices of Catherine Jauniaux and Phil Minton, or the keyboard of Christine Wodraska…
The same seal of aesthetic evidence marks all of her musical companionships, with this same taste, beyond the narrative, for the delicate sonic quests and blossoming of dimensions to which the auditor takes part through an active listening: in the heart of Jean Pallandre’s phonographic worlds, of Jérôme Noetinger & Lionel Marchetti’s small scale cinema, John Butcher or Axel Dörner’s crimpy tissues, by the lovely machines of Erik M or Ikue Mori, the harmonico-stratospheric rustling of Stéphane Rives…
The originality of the research conducted by Sophie Agnel today leads her to develop, in solo or with significantly chosen companions, a most refined and highly poetic approach to sound that makes each of her concerts a moving construction filled with chiseled musical gestures, a soft and sumptuous irradiation.
