The Playlist series is a new path of musical encounters, created for Tempo Reale studios at Villa Strozzi and dedicated to young or important composers from around the world who are asked to propose - in the form of an “acousmatic concert” (music that is projected in space only through loudspeakers) - a selection of electronic music, either their own composition or linked to their geographical location. Therefore, there is the opportunity to discover the new trends in electroacoustic music together with its protagonists.
Québec, the land of Dominic Thibault , is recognized for being the French culture province of Canada immersed in an Americanized world. This ambiguous situation makes it’s metropolis, Montréal, a fertile ground for distinct art practices. Five pieces were selected to create a concert around the world of Dominic Thibault, a emerging and promising composer. In the program are two of his recent works and three pieces from friend composers who have influenced his conception of music. It is, indeed, a opportunity to foresee an up and coming generation of composers who desire to assimilate the cinema for the ears to conceive a new and moving music.
