Malcolm Goldstein on Résonances de la fontaine
“Résonances de La Fontaine is a sounding of Parc La Fontaine. It is a process in which musicians, each following their own path, listen at several designated places in the park, throughout the afternoon, to develop their own vocabulary-gamut of performance materials which are then realized, extended and transformed in the final ensemble improvisation.
Other persons, that have been recording sounds of the environment at these places, participate in the final enactment playing back and improvising with the pre-recorded sounds to create a ground for the performance.
The final improvisation, though derived from the sources of environmental sounds, is something new; a soundscape created by the performers in the interplay moment of making music.”
