SEBASTIEN ROUX‘S Artist Talk & Performance: Sonic Translations

In 2011, I began to develop an approach focused on principles of translation, analyzing the structures of pre-existing art works (visual, musical, literary) and transposing them into scores for new works (radiophonic or electro-acoustic taped music). This process has led to the creation of: Quatuor (2011), an electroacoustic work based on Beethoven’s 10th String quartet, commissioned by Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM), Nouvelle (2012), a radio work based on Flaubert’s short story The Legend of Saint Julien L’Hospitalier, commissioned by the Westdeutscher Rundfunk (WDR) and Inevitable Music (2012- ), a series of pieces based on conceptual artist Sol Lewitt’s wall drawings.

The artist talk will consist in presenting the first two translation pieces :

Quatuor and Nouvelle. For each piece, means of composition will be explained, by exhibiting original fragments (text, score) and their sonic translations.After the artist talk, a multichannel listening session of Inevitable Music will be presented in a concert situation.
