Symphonie pour une architecture

Symphonie pour une architecture

Jean-Pierre Dussault

Canada | 2016 | 29 min
Director Jean-Pierre Dussault’s documentary recounts the extraordinary story of the creation of the symphony Voir dans le vent qui hurle les étoiles rire, et rire… Commissioned by the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec to open the new Pierre Lassonde Pavilion, composers Yannick Plamondon and Symon Henry created a unique symphony for string orchestra, solo marimba and electronic devices inspired by the pavilion’s exquisite architecture. Looking back at the path taken by Plamondon, who came rather late to music, we discover the force and singularity of this work: from the initial commission to the scores, from the performance by the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec on the pavilion’s monumental staircase to the public’s involvement in the performance, striking hundreds of musical triangles.
