LEON is working on a new set based on “l’esprit de l’escalier”, a new set named after French encyclopedist and philosopher Denis Diderot’s « wit of the staircase».
We produced this first idea during a residence at théatre 2.21 in Lausanne, Switzerland
You can discover the first exerp here.

LEON

polyrythm noïse rock improvisation

Regardless it deals with improvised noise, electro acoustics or rock, LEON emphasizes on the ambiguity of the timber, on rhythmic complementarity and on the narrowing versus expansion of the sound spectrum. The produced effects nurture the creation of shadows or echoes, as ghosts or twins whilst still revealing the personalities of the four individual musicians.

The pieces are articulated around the rhythms and the texts. This implies the singing of every member of the band. This enables new playing perspectives and role substitutions. A morphing that characterize the project.
