TAKE FIVE / Space Jeanne de Flandresy, art3, Valence (France) / 2015 /// Premi Miquel Casablancas/Fabra i Coats/Barcelona/2016

A project that has its start point in the Jazz song Take Five from David's Brubeck quartet.
The project is a new version of the drum score of this song, doing a translation from the drum kit parts into french words. With recorded voices from a french MC (hip hop) Madame Bert, and a French a capella singer, Christoph, the song is a new composition with words, more proximate to poetry. The piece has a different way to understand the tempo: it depends on how long are the words to be said.
