Carrer Chapel, Rodez
I am going to create a “medical-musical” concert called: CONCERTO POUR UN COEUR on May 4, 5 and 6 at 9 p.m. at the Paraire chapel in Rodez.
This concert will feature the human heart of Carole (my friend, suffering from cancer and followed at the Montpellier University Hospital): sound and project it on a giant screen to give it a dimension never before explored: THE HEART INSTRUMENT OF FULL-FULL MUSIC.
It will be played and interpreted by renowned cardiologist Jean-Pierre HOUPPE: first HEARTIST thanks to a Doppler echocardiograph.
The heart will dialogue with the artists Zélie AUCLIN on jaw harp, Marion LEPELLETIER on Transviola, Eric DEVOS on percussion; Michel RAJI at the dance of the breath and Christophe DEROO reciting.
This technical and artistic challenge leads the viewer to immerse themselves in their inner world thanks to the heart of Carole who will reveal to us the intimacy of her heart.
The HEART: a muscle, an intelligence; a breath that gives us life.
It is through this concert that the artists will dialogue through improvisation with the heart of Carole but also the whole heart of the public in order to give it a new breath of life.
In addition to this event, we will have the chance to have a conference on “The Intelligence of the Heart” by cardiologist Jean-Pierre Houppe on Saturday May 6 at 4 p.m.
