In chorus, go in search of tunes, melodies, forgotten songs, languages of childhood, ancestral or augural, songs and sounds almost erased … reactivate them, weave them with today, via l listen to the sounds of the world. Greetings, voices, damaged, cracked, reveal and improvise from these materials. Improvisation makes it possible to relate to one’s life path.
This choir is accessible to all, it requires no musical practice or solfegic knowledge. It turns out to be an immersive experience that is practiced with closed eyes, preferably in a dimly lit atmosphere. This frees the gaze of the other and of oneself, it helps to exist otherwise, without feeling judged.
After seven years of practice and joint creation, Chœur Tac-til opens to other people and experiences (children, adolescents, adults and weakened seniors, users, patients, professionals of the reception structures, etc…). That’s when the choir makes sense.
It becomes both the power of the common and the relevant tool to create, repair, release links, thus renewing with an orality, a broken memory.
It always starts with a breath-based warm-up time, listening time and vocal improvisation.
The chorus as a propitious experience dissolves the opposition between the subject and the world.
Chœur Tac-til transmits its technical, practical, physical and therapeutic knowledge, but it is above all by the attention, the care, its sensitivity to the other, to others, that this choir can help, guide and serve as support .
New participants release their voices, their memory, their creative potential. The choir helps to express buried emotions, it has the strength and the capacity to welcome that, and to transform them.
The workshops are recorded and are the subject of a documentary of radio creation, composed by Natacha Muslera.
This documentary features the sung and spoken voices as well as the composite stories of the participants. It will be broadcast on a local radio partner of the company. This was the case at the School of Second Chance, with a program on Radio Galère which was dedicated to these workshops.
This documentary can also find its place within an installation.
