Next January 19, we will play a concert totally devoted to videomusic works. What is videomusic? Jean Piché, one of the composers involved in that project and professor at University of Montreal's faculty of music, gives us a definition of this art form in this Conversations post.
So in this concert, we will present four new works written by four composers from Quebec: Louis Dufort, Jean Piché, Sylvain Pohu and Dominc Thibault. Each of their pieces will use electronic percussion instruments that will control not only the music, but also the video projected on a large screen.
The youngest of these composers, Dominic Thibault, has accepted to take part in a kind of "making of' or mini-documentary on his work. During the next few weeks, up until the performance of his piece, we will have the opportunity to follow Dominic through the process of the composition and the work with the members of Sixtrum on his new piece.
