Expérience 2

Saudaá Group (FR)

Saudaá Group (FR)

 

Saudaá Group is a creation project based on a barrel organ (a hybrid version equipped with the MIDI language) and led by musician Alexis Paul since 2014. Transliteration of Arabic, it expresses a form of melancholy close to the one found in Saudade (a Portuguese word for the complex feeling of melancholy, nostalgia and hope). This project is dedicated to the fundamental links between music, oral tradition, nature, and poetry. It includes sound art, improvisation, as well as an interdisciplinary and relational approach to music.

At the core of this proposal, where tradition and innovative writing meet, the barrel organ is completely revisited, from its symbolic role to its more social dimensions. From this impetus are born repetitive, powerful sound textures, sometimes joined by melodies, electroacoustic sources, musical guests, or even reflexions on travelling. Drawing from the popular heritage of street organs, he completely reinvents it, and positions himself somewhere along the frontier of ethno-poetry.
