Louise Bessette performs works by Beethoven, Boudreau, Debussy.

Originally “calculated” on a CYBER 7400 computer, this work is a musical transposition of certain characteristics relating to the nine planets* of the Solar system. For this presentation, Louise Bessette’s piano will be connected to an immersive visual device, realized by Yan Breuleux, who will stress the “cosmic” experience of the work under the Satosphere’s bright dome.

* For musical and sentimental reasons, in this work, Pluto is always considered as the 9th planet of the Solar system. [Peggy Niloff, translation and adaptation]
