With Cathédrale-Lumière, Quasar offers up an acoustic programme magnified by the exceptionalsound qualities of the Église du Gesù itself. This improbable sound immersion at the core of works specially conceived for reverberant spaces is suggestive of a troubling and hypnotic pilgrimage. An abyss, midway between the perceptible and the intangible where spirited bodies glide along imagined excursions.
The concert will be preceded by the installment of a Fiery Encounter, at 7 pm at Espace Custeau. These round-table discussions, hosted by Philippe Leroux, are intended to give the creating music community a new forum for exchange and debate.
