“Plis / Sons” (“Folds / Sounds”) is a plastic proposition, a mirror game between music, material and light, a game between a singer and a “machinist”, with paper in all its states.
She… folds, caresses, crumples, ruffles, stretches, tears. The voice shapes like the gesture. Sounds emerge from the material.
He… captures, transforms, modulates and restores. His machines shape the sounds. A complicity begins, inviting to listen to the images suggested by a set of light sculptures, in balance, which transfigure the space.
