About the event

Between the pandemic and the war drums, this project brings a calm amidst the chaos. To take the dictionary definition, Phonemes are "perceptually distinct units of sound in language." In parallel,  contemplative music, a whisper of a melody; this is what the word evokes  for François Dompierre. Indeed, this would seem an apt reflection of  the character of the pieces included in this unique set: Maxime, Céleste, Partance, Septembre, Méandre, Cortège and Augustine.  Seven contemplative pieces composed by François Dompierre, mostly  unpublished, and inspired by the cinematic imagery with which he has  crossed paths.
