If that diamond ring turns brass

September 9th, 2014 § 0 comments § permalink

“Many lullabies, sweet as they commonly seem, often reflect dark and sinister meaning. Vigier’s selection from various traditional poems develops throughout the work alongside increasingly more obscure imagery. She delves into the darkness of the night, paying homage to the legends, terrors and the eventual peace that often settles across the night’s span. These images are accompanied by haunting subtleties in the soundtrack, such as the glass bead mobile shimmering beneath the unrelenting violin arpeggios in Kate Moore’s Broken Rosary.”  – Music Trust Australia, review by Tamara Kholer 02-2020

 A work based on the deconstruction of the lyrics in lullabies of various heritages. Re-contextualizing words and images, I composed an abstract berceuse, around the mysteries, the fears and the peace that come with the act of falling asleep. This project is companion to the program called ‘Close your eyes and I’ll close mine’ that toured around Australia in 2012, with Anna McMichael, violin, Tamara-Anna Cislowska, piano, Isabelle Vigier, video. It is published on Unsounds, 2014.

The book is a collection of fifty-five short tales and fifty-five brief music pieces composed by a momentary collective of eighteen musicians. The texts are an assortment of tales written or compiled by diverse authors (from Lucian of Samosata to Virginia Woolf, Emanuel Swedenborg to Blaise Cendrars). There are stories of walking trees, burning dresses, illnesses mysteriously cured, and deaths surprisingly reversed. The music consists of sonic readings and reactions to the stories. Book with 2 CDs and enhanced eBook in english and spanish.
Editor Reinaldo Laddaga, co-curated by Unsounds. Design and illustrations Isabelle Vigier

KAO make & play is a process based creative platform combining visual and physical expression. For kids age 8/13. The participants invent characters, painting big faces on large brown paper bags; these will be the starting point for multiple explorations. Story-making, sound-making, movement and performance, are based on improvisation, observation, dialogue.

The Golden Seaside

April 12th, 2013 § 0 comments § permalink

Set of 6 postcards, edition of 500, 2013
In the Golden Seaside / Souvenir of Famagusta, I obliterate all human presence from postcard views of Famagusta. The deserted images capture the moment, at once real and imaginery, where, in July 1974 the resort was evacuated, and the place stood still. The collection belongs to and was published with ‘Resort & Ruins’, Yannis Kyriakides, Unsounds cat,n. 33U
