There's something very special about Jean-Philippe Collard-Neven's music collardneven.com/index_fr.html, not only the music(s) he plays, but the music he composes as well.
We have started working together a few short years ago only, yet it feels to me like we have always worked together.
This piece, "Toi qui cours avec les loups" ("You who run with the wolves"), was written for a string quartet, and it was recorded by the magnificent Belgian ensemble, the "Quatuor Danel" quatuordanel.eu/
Here again, the challenge/goal is to find/create a dialog between the images and the music, without attempting to "show off" technical "stuff," but rather, to let things happen as it were "on their own."
Once again, as with other pieces we have done together (be they live performances or studio works), I find that Jean-Philippe's music "coule de source" (springs forth spontaneously?) and takes my images along (if I can refrain from interfering).
A far cry from all that "in-your-face" techno-plumbing indigestion invading our/my space, it is an ode to that which we (should) all cherish within ourselves (and share, make visible), our own little music...
