This week as promised, I am publishing my interview with composer and pianist Dominic Faricier. Each day we unpack another layer of his musical journey. Dom works in Graz at the Opera Ballet in Graz,Austria. Enjoy this golden conversation in French and English!
Karen : Your title ‘Experimental Music for Barre’ is a really exciting prospect. Could you explain the title of your book a little more, and if you might be making a version for Centre too?
First of all, thank you Karen for encouraging and helping me in the making of this book. If I remember
correctly, it was you yourself who suggested the idea for this title. I immediately liked it because it leaves a certain openness. This book wants to present a way of doing things among a multitude. To support this, the introductions and endings of the exercises are written in small notes, as if to say “here is an idea but feel free to do something else”. Yes, I hope there will soon be a sequel. The idea would be to make a book for the middle and maybe a third for a class on pointe.
