Musique de Tables
Player I - III: 3 Amplified Table Surfaces
Musique de Tables (Table Music) clearly displays Belgian composer and filmmaker Thierry De Mey’s interest in merging the visual and audio aspects of music into a performance art that engages multiple senses. Musique de Tables is scored for 3 amplified “table surfaces” to be constructed by the performers and notated in a manner entirely unique to this composition. Every sound made by the performers is inseparable from a specific physical motion, and De Mey instructs the performers to create sounds/motions with such colorful names as “castanets,” “the stone,” “wind-shield wipers,” and “the fan.” This unique work of chamber music/choreography has become standard repertoire for percussion ensembles and other new music groups.
