Program notes

Ernest Pignon-Ernest's public work, which gave rise to "Napoli's Walls" in the early 2000s – a hundred black and white images inspired by representations of death in Naples and the paintings of Caravaggio – didn't go unnoticed. In "Characters On A Wall," clarinettist, saxophonist and jazz composer Louis Sclavis takes his acolytes (Sarah Murcia, Christophe Lavergne and Benjamin Moussay) on a journey in the footsteps of his artist friend: to Brest with Jean Genet, to Rome with Pasolini, and from Charleville to Abyssinia with Rimbaud.

"The image of Ernest Pignon gives me movement. I feel more like I'm working with a dancer. More than the aesthetics of the image, it is the movement it engages [that interests me]. I am more interested in the aesthetics of the image than in the movement it engages," says this true alchemist of image and music. Like Chassol, Louis Sclavis composes from image, and has also produced an important filmography, including two films by Amos Gitai.
