e s p a _, solo version , for one singer - performer, is centered on notions of space and movement in relation to sound.

This unamplified, a capella piece is conceived to reveal the acoustic specificities afforded by the architecture of a place. In other words, we explore how a musical composition can bring us to listen to a place.
To this end, the singers not only interpret a musical score but also a choreographic score that guides their positions and movements. These precise scores activate modes of writing and processes that remain flexible enough to make them adaptable to every new concert space. There are therefore two main interests: adapting the piece to a specific space, and being curious about how this space is affected by the scores.
