Musical Muses

where strings meet digital arts

Debussy Quartet

General Audience
New music

What lies behind a masterpiece? Whether pictorial or musical, it is difficult for the artist to find inspiration without being able to identify the subtle and fragile figures which give birth to creation, nor to succeed in observing those muses without whom nothing would be possible. Accompanied by stage director David Gauchard, the Debussy Quartet wished to question the form(s) of a work through the prism of a painter‘s studio and through his muses, by installing the artist at the heart of a digital and organic stage setting. This brand-new project will appeal as much to the audience as to the quartet, as they observe the instruments being ‘drawn'.
