Micheline Coulombe Saint-Marcoux

Contrastances has been performed in Montréal and Paris…

Developed from a limited amount of material, this study juxtaposes moments whose contrasting effects are produced through different sound treatments. Each moment brings forward its own sound characteristics, and this results in a constant play of opposites.

[English translation: Andra McCartney]

Contrastances was realized in February 1971 in a private studio in Paris (France) and premiered on April 1, 1971 at the Musée d’art moderne, in Paris (France).
