Leblanc, Jimmie: ... and the Flesh was made Word

Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The Gospel according to John reports that following the Beginning, “the Word was made
    flesh” through the incarnation of the divine Logos in the person of Christ. By “and the Flesh
    was made Word”, I wanted to suggest that the words actually very often occur -after- a
    bodily experience. Indeed, we naturally reflect upon our feelings to intellectualize them, as
    it seems difficult to let sensations and emotions be simply what they are in their profusion,
    diffusion and confusion. In this piece, I designed sound fabrics as if they were more tactile
    than narrative, notably by using the formantic structures of French vowels, as if the sound
    flux was modeled by linguistic sonorities while not being organized as a linguistic discourse.
    I also explored spectromorphological categories such as granulation, iteration, sound
    streams, periodicity, as many concepts that keep us closer to the materiality of sound.
