Moondog, born in Kansas under the name of Louis Thomas Hardin, is a singular musical figure. Initially from the Jazz scene, Moondog kept on integrating the classical technique of the counterpoint to his compositions, his friendships with Steve Reich and Philip Glass will establish his position as a pioneer of minimal music so-called repetitive, even if he defended himself on that point.Blind at the age of 16 as a result of an accident, he immersed himself into music through a specialised establishment where he learned the violin, the piano and the organ, bringing him to write his first compositions in Braille. His first public will be the one from the streets of New York and his growing success will bring him to give stage appearances in jazz clubs, becoming therefore the «The Viking of 6th Avenue». Unclassifiable, his compositions borrow to classical composing while renewing the rhythmic process.

 

"Classical composer of the Modern Times, his minimalism, his contemporary music inspired by scheme of writing from the Middle Ages and Renaissance. This century in which he was born, he went through it from part to part, leaving behind him a thousand of written works for dozens of instruments from the organ to the computer."
(Amaury Cornut, Le Mot et le Reste, 2014)

 

The young musicians will interpret throughout the exhibition space, in addition to two emblematic pieces of the “Viking”, pieces from J. S. Bach and Léo Brouwer, from fugue to minimalism.
