Hector Zazou is without a doubt one of the most versatile and best-known creators on the European scene. In his career as a sound sculptor and composer, he has delved into rock, traditional African music and impressionist music, and worked with the likes of David Byrne, Ryuichi Sakamoto, John Cale and Bill Laswell, amongst many others. This key figure in contemporary music comes to CaixaForum to present his acclaimed work Bird Symphony, composed as the soundtrack for Carl Theodor Dreyer’s film The Passion of Joan of Arc. Starting with electronically processed bird songs, Hector Zazou builds up a strangely beautiful sound universe which leads us along a fascinating path to reveal the spirituality and psychology of this delicious cinematic poem.
