La plante humaine Robert Marcel Lepage

Avec La plante humaine, le compositeur montre l’incroyable étendue de son talent, superposant hard-rock, musiques africaines, jazz et «bruitisme», en un zapping sonore absolument étourdissant (dans le meilleur des sens du terme). Voir, Québec

Robert Marcel Lepage, who has collaborated with Québec film-maker Pierre Hébert for over a decade, is now treating us to the soundtrack of Hébert’s animation film: La Plante humaine.

“For his phonographic opus, Lepage chose to distance himself from the vocal style of film operas. Instead, this is a symphonic rendition of this lyrical work, a non-stop version of the fragmented pieces in the film. Through a skillful, fluid editing, “La plante humaine” offers a continuity and a legato that are more musical than audiovisual. Shining with contrasts between neo-romantic borrowings and modern rhythms, African percussions, hard rock and jazz and, reminiscences of Varèse-like tapestries of sound music, “La Plante humaine” shows Robert Marcel Lepage taking part in the contemporary opera.” —Réal La Rochelle
