LES BONNES HISTOIRES

*

«Les bonnes histoires sont là Pas besoin de les inventer Les bonnes histoires sont lentes Et parfois elles s’accélèrent» — GL

Drawing on six poems extracted from Geneviève Letarte's Book Tout bas très fort, Caloia knots words with the music, rearranging the text with the same techniques used to order the sound. The result is a magnetic new work written for voice, flute, baritone saxophone, clarinets, contrabass, and percussion. To this instrumentation Caloia has adds pre-recorded drum machines tracks, diverted from their normal metronomic duties to become electronic textures and rhythmic palindromes.
