” Inuti »
The singing voice of the Swedish composer Malin Bang punctuated our programs on France Musique this week, highlighting the broadcast of each movement of Inuti, the series of miniatures imagined for the set love music. To save this page to Radio France, Malin Bang traveled from Gothenburg to Paris, via Strasbourg, where she met the musicians of Lovemusic.
The rehearsals were dense, because in creation, as we know, the score is only a starting point, especially since Malin bang explores particular modes of playing on the instruments, and adds objects to the device.
These objects – natural wooden boxes, vegetable brushes, grating sticks, and dried twigs – bring to the music Inuti a particular color.
Inuti is an almost ecological, tactile, sensory music.
Inuti is a Swedish word meaning insideand which consists of three words-syllables: In (inside ), C (outside), I (towards the inside).
A world of sensations
In this composition, the composer is interested in the links that we maintain, we humans, with the outside world: the path between the inside of our bodies and the outside of the world, via the different senses. It is a form of manifesto in which Malin Bang expresses the frustration she feels with the importance of digital in our daily lives, with the increasingly commercial platforms that divert our attention as soon as we go on the web.
The focus is on our tactile experiences: a wooden surface that we touch with the hand, the mouth that touches the musical instrument, the contact of the skin on the strings of a guitar, far from the digital environment , its noise, its agitation.
The musicians of love music had great fun exploring these game territories!
