Depuis l’Aube … was commissioned by the Orchestre d’Harmonie de la région Centre for its new season, and is the cornerstone of the call for participatory projects for the region’s orchestras.
What could be more obvious than a suite of dances to regenerate the desire to meet, to travel, to surpass oneself and to share once again our common passion: music?
The idea of the argument appeared quickly by evoking the notion of relationship to time that the current crisis necessarily makes us rediscover. I thus imagined a series of paintings proposing the unfolding of a day. Depuis l’Aube … takes us on a journey from the elation of first light to the frenzy of dusk, with music that highlights the rhythmic vitality of these dances. Like William Hogarth’s Four Times of the Day, Morning, Noon, Evening and Night, Depuis l’Aube does not describe the life of a single individual, but rather offers a vision of city life.
