Quasar and Totem contemporain perform La plénitude du vide by Jean-François Laporte.

Having premiered his saxophone quartet Le chant de l’inaudible and participated in different projects including the premiere of Tribal, Quasar here follows with a large-scale project resulting from a privileged collaboration with composer Jean-Francois Laporte. This new work is the result of an intense cooperative effort between performers and composer. The piece evolved through a series of experimental and research-based workshops, all of which characterize the composer’s typical working style.

The piece, which will be premiered at the Eglise St-Jean-Baptiste in Montreal, has been created specifically for this space. In fact, the idea of spatialization lies at the heart of the project, along with a focus on timbre. Beginning with a single sound, an incredible world of sonorities is deployed, a fusion of saxophones and invented instruments.
