by a diverse and wonderful instrument: The vielle
Since 1000 years, it was in turn the emblematic instrument of the
clergy, beggars, princes, peasants ...
and loathed (and vice versa) then resurrected then forgotten, no
instrument has had a so incredible story. Because of its history, the
instrument is multifaceted and adapted to all musics.
Luthier, my work is to both improving the play possibilities,
sounds, and also recreating medieval forms of the vielle.
Musician, I am attached to the peculiarities of the instrument: drones,
continuous sound, rhythmic .
The vielle is for me the tool to create endless universe of sound.
