Info for Pulsions



What is the force that motivates us to react? The story is simple. Upon returning from a long journey, a few kilometers away from 'chez nous', the question came to light: And what now? Fear of an artistic void? Terrified of a blank page? Or skilled like a chess player, always a step ahead? Like two crazy people, we decided to experiment with a slightly cavalier approach. We threw our message in a bottle out to sea, in the direction of composer friends. The idea was still vague. Ready to row against the current, we thought we were embarking on a hopeless mission. But what a surprise, we received no refusals! It rained scores, rhythmic, varied, inspired... and this project came to life! From a idea thrown out there, a creative impulsion, our heartbeats started to race. Composers dedicate their time, their intuitions, their quills and invent new scores. It is a story of friendships transformed into sounds. To prepare this programme was, for us, a total revelation. We hope that your ears will appreciate this moment of liberty, the fruit of our musical impulse.

Duo Ypsilon:
Charles Michiels, clarinet
Simon Diricq, saxophone



Duo Ypsilon
Saxophones & Clarinettes, le duo Y (UPSILON) se joue des ambivalences et du dédoublement. Cette étrange dualité qui rapproche deux instruments de la famille des vents ressuscite les fantômes de la mythologie grecque. Le satyre Marsyas jouait de l’aulos, flûte double à deux anches, enchantant les paysans qui disaient qu’Apollon n’aurait pu mieux jouer de sa lyre !

Sans craindre la terrible colère du dieu du chant, de la musique et de la poésie (qui fit écorcher vif le pauvre Marsyas après s’être mesuré à lui dans un concours truqué), Charles Michiels et Simon Diricq conjuguent leurs talents et leurs instruments si semblables et si différents: sax soprano ou baryton, clarinette basse ou Sib… Ils inventent un duo hors normes sous le signe de Marsyas: Charles joue de toutes les clarinettes, Simon du saxophone baryton au soprano!

Leur répertoire s’étend des origines de la musique aux pièces contemporaines (Yann Robin, Thierry De Mey, Alexandros Markeas, Christian Lauba…), des transcriptions aux pièces inédites, de commandes en créations. Avec énergie et sensualité, ils mettent en espace d’inédites chorégraphies musicales.
