Le rêve de Maneki-Neko Estelle Schorpp

Maneki-Neko (The Inviting Cat) is a famous traditional Japanese statue representing a sitting cat with its paw lifted up to its ear. It is a symbol of good fortune and joy. In Le rêve de Maneki-Neko, I play with patterns of bounces, suspension and rhythm. The patterns move quickly and in a linear way at the beginning, evolving to a more fragmented and spatialized writing at the end. In an artificial and dreamlike atmosphere, this music attempts to be as agile, joyful and mocking as a cat’s pounce.
