French composer and singer Annabelle Playe will stop by Memphis this December during her U.S tour to present her new album GEYSER.
Composed in three parts, Geyser deploys an energy with strong contrasts around sound shots sometimes stripped, sometimes massive. Clear sounds, pure timbres switch to distortion evoking the subterranean eruption and the release of a tension.
Annabelle Playe, alone on stage, interprets music from electronic instruments making the sound a physical
experience of density, intensity, variations and saturations. She digs the notion of movement, displacement and transformation through the journey, the odyssey and the inner quest. The modification of a point of view, the interior perception and the changes of states are at the heart of her research. The perception of the listener is thus shifted to harsh territories, contrasted to make room for stripping.
This tour has been made possible through the Jazz & New Music, a program of FACE Foundation, in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States.Read more
