This is the silence before the storm.
Who can explain this obscured horizon? Someone shouts Silence ! Time is suspended now, all is frozen. The slow muffled rolling of the drums rises from the depths becoming a deafening noise. A rain of metal fills the air, sheet lightning overwhelms the sky.
Musician/pyrotechnician artists of Les Commandos Percu invent a storm of sounds and fire that resonates deep inside.“Music is distorted silence”. In between two notes silence releases its strength.
What is going to happen ? What is coming next ? Les Commandos Percu’s new show Silence ! questions our relationship to time and our use of it. It questions the future : what will we do when there is nothing left? As Frank Zappa of the Mothers of Invention wrote : “Necessity is the mother of invention”.
