A performance within the unfinished
It’s 6 o’clock in the morning. It’s dark.
200 people equipped with hard hats are invited to enter a construction site.
At the heart of the construction site the viewer can now sit on a deckchair and put the headphones, audio this time, on these ears.
An unusual smell emanates from the site. A smell of gas, of heated metal. The scene is set.
It’s 6:15. The work lights are cut. The space is plunged into darkness.
The orchestra begins its performance. A unique piece lasting 45 minutes with no interruption.
A trax percussionist, crane harpist, pneumatic drill bass player, a flying vertical piano…
The sounds clash and coexist.
The mechanical beating of the cement mixer, the strident cries of the milling machine, the humming gravel in the troughs of excavators all create a tempo, a rhythm.
The piano melodies seep into the hubbub. It flies, somewhere, above the audience. It sways softly, gracefully.
