Showcase Wednesday đŸŽ”

This audiovisual show combines a film of whale ballet with extraordinary variety of whale sounds, from the lowest to the highest pitched, with his double bass. What the audience hears is a fascinating, moving song that cries and laughs, the very song of the whales, reinvented by the composer-improviser.

The double bassist Bernard Abeille has devised his show in the form of a visual and aural dialogue performed live. It interprets an imaginary encounter that touches on a very tangible reality: the slow destruction of our planet and its living spaces by humankind.

Le spectacle « Baleine et contrebasse » mĂȘle aux images filmĂ©es d’un ballet de baleines les sons extraordinairement divers, des plus graves aux plus aigus, qu’il tire de son instrument. Un chant fascinant, bouleversant, qui pleure, qui rit, que l’on entend ; le chant mĂȘme des baleines reconstituĂ©, rĂ©inventĂ© gĂ©nialement par le compositeur improvisateur.

C’est dans la forme d’un dialogue visuel et sonore, interprĂ©tĂ© en direct, que le contrebassiste Bernard Abeille a conçu son spectacle qui parle d’une rencontre imaginaire, qui touche pourtant une rĂ©alitĂ© bien palpable : la lente destruction de notre planĂšte et de son espace vivant par les humains.
