Description:
Program note (English): 'Chant ascendant' is the fourth and most virtuoso part of the cycle 'Chants monotones' and deals, as the title infers, with ascension. Its text is a free adaptation of Jacques Préverts 'Cortège' , in which a basically nonsensical and enumerative text is gradually unravelled, set to rhyme, forgotten and dissected until the only adjective (formerly disguised as noun) remains at the ending of the piece. The dramatics of the 'Chant ascendant' are entirely determined by the speed and manner of text-recitation. Technically it is an exercise in 5-part counterpoint. The cycle as a whole deals with various aspects of minimal change explored in a maximal manner. Main inspiration lies in the quasi-non-eventfulness of recitative, the ritual of repetition in the dramatics of textual enumeration and the desire to say the maximum with a minimum of material. 'The title Monotone' does not betray a desire to make boring music but, rather, to investigate the possibilities of static surfaces. -
