This is an original project that will see the light of day at the Graslin theater on Friday, February 21 at 8 p.m .: Manuel Adnot has composed an Amor Infiniti show that combines music, visual arts and song.
If he made himself known by touring with the Sidony Box trio, Manuel Adnot trained at the Nantes conservatory continues his career with more personal projects:
I wanted to explore the relation to silence and space, explains the latter. I’ve done a lot of research around vocal music, I’ve read a lot of Japanese authors, especially Kawabata. I wrote a score for 8 voices very influenced by Iceland.
Manuel Adnot offered Etienne Ferchaud, head of Macadam Ensemble, to provide the vocal part of the composition while the plastic artist Barthélémy Antoine Antoine-Loeff will manipulate the light directly to create paintings on stage.
Like the musicians of the Icelandic art scene like Sigur Rós, Jóhann Jóhannsson or Alex Somers, Manuel Adnot installs long layers of sound – played by the guitar or sung by the choir – at the service of nagging and melancholic compositions.
Playing at the Graslin Opera is a new experience for Manuel Adnot:
What I like is to defend this music in this context, it gives it a different value. I have already played in chapels, homestays, or on big stages.
A record was released at the end of January to find Amor Infiniti on the Fo Feo productions label.
Show to be seen Friday, February 21 at 8 p.m. at the Graslin Opera.
