the project is based on the idea of generating, with each interpretation,
different music resulting from the same score, each containing in itself
sufficient essential elements so as to connect these individual interpretations.
Although the score is not locked in a given and final written piece, it
nevertheless proposes a basis for a well defined "takeoff".
With this in mind, the four musicians are subjected to different playing
strategies and each has at his disposal two tables or playing reservoires:
a main table concerning the sounds, i.e., pitch, isolated notes or harmony,
according to the instruments. In this first table, the performer has enormous
freedom (duration of sounds, dynamics, approach to the instrument, effects,
the possibility of changing instruments, etc.). The general style of interpretation
must however remain soft. The second table, common to all performers,
proposes a succession of predetermined silences during which the musician
The execution of the piece is made following a course generated and determined
by the tossing of the dice which decide and direct the musician towards
the action of “silence” or the action of “sound”.
The musical result should be similar to a love experience with time, moment
and sound... "
The average duration of the versions of "Music of Wheel" interpreted
by Ensemble 0 ranges between 40 min and 2h30. For this reason Ensemble
0 proposes here six fragments drawn from three versions recorded in studio.
