Jouer Trailer
Presented only in theatres
Sound of Wear exposes the atypical path of three percussionists attempting to capture unlikely sonic moments: a rusty bath, dissolving flutes, sugaring on drums, melting ice, soaking wood… A variety of material reactions take place on different timescales. The Bascaille trio uses its worn-out instrumentarium in a video that has itself undergone various alterations and hybridizations. Bascaille consists of Tom Jacques, Antoine Létourneau-Berger and Olivier Tremblay-Noël, all hailing from the Bas-Saint-Laurent region of Quebec. This percussion ensemble stands at the crossroads of music, sound art, arts and crafts, and visual arts.

This film is part of the FIFA EXPERIMENTAL section program INVENTIONS.

Bascaille - Trio de percussion

Bascaille - Trio de percussion

Bascaille is a percussion ensemble that crosses the boundaries of music, sound art, craft and visual arts. The trio comprises Tom Jacques, Antoine Leìtourneau-Berger and Olivier Tremblay-Noël, all of whom originate from the Bas-Saint-Laurent. They continuously strive to conceive new devices to make music that is not bound by the limits of traditional instruments or ideas associated with classical percussion.
