An orchestra of mechanical machines strikes up a symphony with a completely random score that is new every time.
This is an installation-concert-show created by true gleaners and collectors of sounds.... An orchestra of machines, arranged in a semi-circle on stage, plays out a symphony based on a completely aleatory and always changing score. A big clock activates the machines and provides them with information on how to perform. Two musical mechanics keep the orchestra going…
After the sonorous poetry of “Pendule” presented in FIMFA Lx9, Jéranium & Man'hu return to Teatro Maria Matos with a series of sound machines.
Musician and factotum, Jéranium creates sound machines from recycled materials. Fond of mechanical music, he splits his activities in different musical projects, working with the improvisation group Silent Block. He is the author and capo-orchestra of Léon Napakatbra, street mechanical concert based on fair complex paraphernalia. Meanwhile he organizes interactive exhibitions of sound machines as “Le Son des Choses” and “Les Guitares”.
Visual artist, builder and decorator, Man’Hu works with Jeranium in the production of Léon Napakatbra, Kiang and on the submarine workshop El Axolot. With Delphine Sekulak and Marie Bouchacourt founds the scenography collective Hirsute and prepares set designs for the shows of the collective Métalu A Chahuter.
