Fondation Louis Moret: Alain Roche

Alain Roche in his solo piano concert: Winter Solstice

Alain Roche chooses horizontality and acoustics to present his new composition WINTER SOLSTICE.

Written on the island of Fleinvaer in northern Norway, and inspired by sounds captured in nature that are imperceptible to the human ear, this single-movement score is based on the system of star attraction that creates the seasons on Earth, transposing nature’s perpetual cycle into repetitive, elastic rhythmic cells.

This piece is the starting point for the SOLSTICE TO SOLSTICE project, a daily performance on the blue hour, from winter solstice to summer solstice.
