Michel Titin-Schnaider

Objets sonores

Concrete is poured over violins and violas placed on naked matresses on the floor. The orchestra are straining not to move. This is serious. The tuning alone takes 11 minutes or more. There is tension in the audience as the seats begin to squeak and creak under the weight of the sound. The volume increases like termites eating a mountain of pine. They copulate and get inside the cellos. The knobbles that tune the strings begin to loosen as the players continue to tune their drones. As the strings loosen the pitch gets disturbingly twisted. They continue to play under the orders of the conductor. It now begins to sound like Times Square, New York on a Friday night. The people scramble to escape the noise. This is only the first track on Objets Sonors. The second track is made from Piano. Discover with closed eyes.
