the more, the merrier

The More, the Merrier (romance on the verge of cacophony), The Staircase Gallery in Brumath, 2002; in the streets of Strasburg, 2005; on stage at the TJP, 2006. An impromptu for 100 virtuosos: distribution of 100 rearranged music boxes. Endowed by the DRAC Alsace, the Ville de Strasbourg and an anonymous sponsor. Video: 3’47”.

The music box is an object that lies day and night, between fear of the dark and a land of dreams. One day or another each and every one of us has listened to this delicate mechanism. And yet, although we gladly acknowledge the virtues of its essence, we generally listen to it alone. This impromptu concert was a way to play these tunes and this little music again, to start off on a journey together. Maybe to avoid dwelling upon things so familiar that we may be rocked to sleep.
