has been questioning the conception of storms in baroque operas. Four projects
did belong to this programme:
In October 2000, Rémy-Michel Trotier went to
Drottningholm to make recordings of the Wind and Thunder machineries, thanks
to the Naumann
In September 2001, these recordings have been used
together with Glass harmonica sounds as incidental music for a demonstration
of reconstruction of voltairian theatre, in the general frame of the project
Acting Styles around Voltaire" with
Leiden University and Leidse Shouwburg.
In October 2001, they have been used again for
incidental sounds in the production of Orlando
furioso by Gilbert Blin, in Statni
Opera Praha, under the musical direction of Jiri Kotouc.
in January 2002, they have been extensively transformed and used as material
for a new piece for Glassharmonica and electronics: La Machine des Orages.
