le temps bouge mais n'avance pas
"le temps bouge mais n'avance pas", treats time perception through the circular and finite motion of spinning tops. A cumulative set of variations evoking the sound of this object and the musicians movement needed to produce it; arising questions such as:
How can spinning tops be perceived even without its sound? And until what point can we imagine a sound if we just see the action that produces it?
A crossroad between sounds and movements where the orchestra dialogues with pre- recorded sounds creating a new perceptive dimension.
