De velours et d’acier Dominic Thibault

It is inside our deepest convictions that we meet our true weakness. Just like a parody of ourselves.

«De velours et d’acier» is an acousmatic piece that has its origins in my taste for rock music. Its title, «Of velvet and steel» in French, is, by its many level of interpretations, a brief representation of the whole piece. The beginning of this project resides in the multitrack recording of a metalcore band by an acousmatic composer. Rapidly, the harsh guitars, screaming voices and tight drums convinced me of the immense acousmatic potential of all this material.
