“Exformation” is everything that we don’t really say but think when we are silent: a gestural exchange. Creator of Gestrument for nomadic applications, Jesper Nordin imagined the control of the electronics decentralized, given to each of the ensemble’s soloists, while continuing to analyze the predominate role of the conductor whose every gesture is significant. Laurent Cuniot’s relationship with technology is one of confrontation of writing (instrumental and electroacoustic), the declination of the connection between the soloist musician with the electronics and the instrumental ensemble: from synergy to head-on opposition. A prelude, four movements, and a postlude strung together.
