Produced during a residency at Abbaye de Sylvanès Centre Culturel de Rencontres, Aveyron, France.
A co-production of Centre National de Création Musicale d’Albi-Tarn & du Centre d'Art Le Lait.
ANTENAE is a musical film documenting the encounter between a Flemish theorbist and a sound recordist. For 2 days and 2 nights, they explore a Cistercian abbey and its surroundings, each equipped with their own instruments. The neck of the theorbo and the boom of the microphone become appendages for probing the site and conversing with discrete forms of existence: waves, frequencies and ghosts. Their gestures and visions intertwine in a final, hallucinatory tour de chant. ANTENAE is the whimsical, sensitive testimony of two practitioners of sound and music, and the way these phenomena pass through them.
