« Set in the heart of nature, Quatuor Sésame interprets a musical composition from Benjamin Britten. The wood from the string instruments resonates mysteriously with the wood of the trees. This unique dialogue between nature and music gradually takes us on a reflective exploration of our senses. »
Movie Bois contre Bois is entirely musical and without words. It presents a Benjamin Britten’s work, Quatuor n°1 Op. 25, played and recorded entirely in the film set. Musicians face the challenge of playing into the wild.
Around Britten’s work, the filmmaking chose to entangle pictures and sound creations in order to dialogue, complete, disturb and glorify the musical speech.
The photography, far from a video clip or a musical recording, create contrast for the audience thanks to slow motions, raw nature shots and aerial viewpoints.
The sound creation links Britten’s work and the imagery. The movie does not intend to make sound and picture muddle, but on the contrary, to call upon an unexpected strangeness to create desire and active public listening. From slow to swift rhythm, the movie takes us to an experimental and dreamy fantasy..
