Roland Auzet, Jérôme Thomas, Wilfried Wendling
One, king of jugglery and major figure in circus arts, juggles with bells of different sizes out of his pocket. The other, composer and virtuoso percussionist having attended circus school, plays on a musical egg.
Jérôme Thomas and Roland Auzet merge their respective world to create a surprising symphony. In order to imagine this oneiric world and orchestrate their tête-à-tête, they call on Robert Hébrard, brilliant luthier who crafted them curious objects-instruments – globes, spheres and totems – built on the principle of roly-poly toys. Beneath the fingers of our two object tamers, they come to life, swirl, tintinnabulate, draw musical variations…
These two men who juggle in their mind orchestrate a score of a new kind, composed of balls, electro, percussions, drums, bags of M&M’s and other bamboos. As sorcerer’s apprentices they explore the laws of gravity, experiment those of the propagation of waves and thus make up a oneiric world of illusions and sounds. Picture quality mingles with poetry of sounds distilled live by Wilfried Wendling. A musical circus that gives you as much to hear than to listen to.
