3. Tune-Up (Irish tunes)
Dur: 9mn50
Electroacoustic series of sampled live instrumental music works. Folk tunes and forgotten music are borrowed, modified, rearranged and rewritten to obtain new music. The idea and intention by working with existant music works and styles are oriented by the always present & living practice of cover and reappropriation of popular and easy tunes and songs. Like choruses, these works could be daily whistled and still remain in head. One aim could be to play the resulted music with an instrumental ensemble or orchestra, or eventually for brass band, marching band, pit orchestra or skiffle band.

Inedite (still in progress)

Premiered :
• Apr. 2011 : WebSYNradio, a radio program by Dominique Balaÿ, http://droitdecites.org/websynradio/
• Jun. 2011 : Radiophonic Creation Day, a radio program by Coraline Janvier & Julia Drouhin, http://www.shakerattleroll.org/

Série d'œuvres électroacoustiques composées à partir de musiques instrumentales live, existantes et échantillonnées. Ici, des musiques et airs populaires ou traditionnels sont empruntés, modifiés, ré-arrangés et ré-écrits afin d'obtenir de nouvelles musiques. L'intention de travailler avec des musiques et des matériaux existants perpétue la pratique toujours vivante de la reprise et de la réappropriation musicale. Comme des refrains ou des ritournelles, ces œuvres peuvent facilement rester dans la tête, obsédantes, et pourraient être sifflées quotidiennement. Un des objectifs seraient que ces musiques résultantes soient jouées à nouveau par un ensemble instrumental ou orchestral, ou encore pour un orchestre d'harmonie, une fanfare, etc.
