Froissements Gabriel Dufour-Laperrière

“Froissements” Prelude-creases-postlude Music is to me a need to organize the chaotic sounds that we live in. As instrumental music is in a way an instrumentalisation of our own voice for a need to go further the language’s possibilities, electroacoustic music is an instrumentalisation of our surroundings for a need to articulate it so it would become somehow comprehensible. “Froissements” is an attempt to do so by turning the matter inward until something can eventually emerge. Therefore, instrumental, abstract and concrete sounds interact and try to articulate itself in response to its surroundings. Like understanding the incomprehensible chaos outside, it is an impossible task but a necessary one.
