›Symphonia Harmoniæ Cælestium Revelationum (2019)‹ is the title of the project that François Chaignaud and Marie-Pierre Brébant are working on during their residency at PACT.

Our dream is to play – by heart – the entire body of Hildegard Von Bingen’s (1098-1179) musical work, adapted and reinvented for voice and bandura. To accompany this music with a visual art work which would be immaterial, digital or luminous. The coherence and force of Von Bingen’s musical work, the enigmas that her life and era present to our contemporary world, the aura that surrounds her personality, all inspire us to imagine a piece at the crossroads of performance, exhibition, music and dance. Reviving an art that heals alters the function that is given to museums and art. The creation will be observed through partnerships with the neuropsychologist Hervé Platel and the MNEMOSYNE project of the CNRS.
