Gaspar Claus is an adventurous cellist, kind of paradoxical and always open to surprise, who never stops playing with the codes of the music world. From improvised music to contemporary music, by way of flamenco or pop, his exuberant technique has served his numerous collaborations (Serge Teyssot-Gay, Pedro Soler, Barbara Carlotti, Peter Von Poehl, Jim O'Rourke, Sufjan Stevens, Angélique Ionatos...). He is one of the free musicians for whom music is, above all, the expression of a presence in the world, the celebration of a certain idea of friendship, of living together, of the violence of pleasure.
Forming a duet with his father, the flamenco guitarist Pedro Soler, he will perform on stage at the Musée Départemental Arles Antique on Monday, July 10th.
Read between the notes… Instrumental approaches are often based on learning the rhythm, the tune and the faithful interpretation of a sheet music. It is rare to approach the practice of an instrument by its negative side. Not by the notes played but what surrounds them. The silence, the air that arrives before and after each sound that we create.
Whether you're playing the trumpet, the guitar, the piano, or any other instrument, join Gaspar Claus and open your conscience to the notes. In a collective creative process, learn to listen to what resonates rather than what sounds, find out that breaking the silence can be done in several ways, which are all true as long as you do not forget that you are breaking something as you play.
