Mélodie Around the World
|Fri., Mar. 10, 2017||Anne La Berge: Utter + Pablo Rubio-Vargas & Mélodie Around the World: Bassonancia||Radius Gallery|
I come from a Early Music background, with a special focus on historical bassoons. In 2014-2015 I went for a world travel through 14 countries over 4 continents, meeting traditional musicians and exchanging views on historically informed performance and on traditional and non-western classical musics.
In 2016 I've been in residence in Casa Allen - Casa das Artes in Porto, Portugal. I used this time to experiment new relationships between the musician's body and the audience. I developed then other projects in Portugal, as "ComCordas" with four musicians playing plucked instruments from different musical cultures, and a solo "le Cinquième Temps" including voice, dance and wind instruments.
