Jérôme Noetinger, remembering the 1987 Libération special issue asking “Why do you make films?” and the answer by Jean-Luc Godard (“I make movies to avoid the why question”), has decided to ask “the why question” to about 40 artists and producers, amongst whom: Jean-François Denis, Bertrand Denzler, Bernard Fort, Lionel Marchetti, Martin Tétreault, Carole Rieussec, Joëlle Léandre

June 29, 2007: Fort in the Oratory of Caluire, France

Wednesday, June 20, 2007 In concert

On June 29, 2007 Bernard Fort will present his Messe pour le mois d’octobre at the Chapelle de l’Oratoire in Caluire (France). This 5-movement work explores different acoustic spaces — might they be in stereo, multitracks or panoramic — recorded outside or inside, partially or totally reconstituted. The work also explores the multiple uses of voice, and sound symbolism.
