Info for Double Portrait
Improvisation, composition: "As a drummer I think of improvisation the moment I play a note, written out or not. The rehearsal/creation of my compositions was a two-stage process – firstly, playing the music as written in the score like a – traditional - orchestra would do, then detaching oneself from the score and working on a stepping back,on silence and the emergence of melodic lines like memories that suddenly surface."
A dual creative approach:"I wanted to link my music with my painting, to connect the drummer’s gesture to the painter’s. I make no distinction between the two disciplines, I have always had a very close relationship with them and I’ve always felt an almost simultaneous desire to play /compose and to paint, to externalize a vision and an inner song."
Links between painting and music: "And navigating this sometimes limpid, sometimes mysterious musical or pictorial language, one foot in reality, the other elsewhere, I like to feel a giddiness and find what I haven’t been looking for. "
