Sonore boréale

Sylvain Lemêtre

Unusual percussion instruments

Sylvain Lemêtre

Here is an original, intimate, mischievous and accomplished solo, during which percussionist Sylvain Lemêtre exploits the best of his qualities : great musicality, a sense of orality and theatricality, and impeccable dramaturgy. Seated behind a large table, as if in a workshop, an impressive number of objects and unusual percussion instruments is laid out before him, to play, improvise and talk with. Here a pipe that serves as a microphone, there a talking brush... Everything vibrates and resonates, as it accompanies the narration. Personified, the original sounds build the story and the text, a story which is ultimately that of the performance taking place.
