Guionnet / Murayama

This duo started as a purely musical improvisation project.In 2006, it was integrated by Catherine Diverrès in a choreographic project (Blowin’), while continuing in parallel its original path. Structure, presence of the dancers, lights, objects, all the elements of this creation forced us to find completely different ways of playing music, despite the strong commitment of the project to improvisation that we are familiar with.

From where was born the idea of finding other fields of exploration for the duo. Assuming the “non-concert” as a situation, in relation to space, time, silence, etc. Making a concert as a non-concert. Searching for absence.
