This month B4Baroque is again in Cremona for a distinctive project on instrument development. Something going in the root of the idea and balance of tension and sound that happens in baroque models.
Density, grain, material, energy…. And proportion.
All elements featured in the Monteverdi project where the voice style matches the energy and tension. Vocal chords like violin strings, bricks and wood an halls of churches like cambers.
The body as an instrument.
The body as a weapon.
The body as a resonance.
This is baroque.
This is monteverdi450.
The resounding steps on the stones, like breath.
Death upon your shoulder while the sound of the violin echoes the lying of the river in its bed.
