The Steve Reich Guitar Project

A Solo Electric Guitar(s) Album by Pierre Bibault

Pierre Bibault, Launch of The Steve Reich Guitar Project, July 2020

 

Ihave always been very touched by Steve Reich's music. For two years now, I've been planning to record a monographic disc of his music. Then came the Lockdown, and its suspension of time. Overnight, the world came to a standstill, and we were confronted with a new relationship with Time.



Steve Reich's music came back into my life at that moment. A minimalist music, where time flows differently. I wanted to record it and illustrate it with a video of the 1st movement of Electric Counterpoint, a work for Live Guitar and pre-recorded tapes, which would represent my perception of this strange moment of lockdown, a new moment in our lives. I made this video in about a month. She hung up on my desire to do new projects. A desire that had left me at the beginning of March, swept away by the extent of the disaster we were all going through.

 

 

Following the publication of the video, on May 24, 2020, I received many enthusiastic messages and comments on social networks.

France Musique then invited me to come and play all three movements of Electric Counterpoint for its Summer Festival.
Invitation accepted and challenge taken up: I had to go back to recording the tapes for the two movements that were missing, and provide them for the Live recording on July 4th 2020. This emulation around these different projects, led me to the obvious: I had to record the recording I had planned for two years already.

Today, I want to involve you in this project that's so close to my heart. I hope that you can contribute to its creation. A project like this requires a huge investment, both in time and money.

You can participate to the Crowdfunding until September 30th, by clicking here:

The Steve Reich Guitar Project

I have already contacted Steve Reich's publisher to obtain the recording and arrangement rights, and to receive the various scores. Technically, this is music that requires the superimposition of 15 to 16 guitars, including two basses. Recording so much sound material over an hour of music is the equivalent of weeks of recording studio time, which must be financed and assumed with the pressure of time.

I would feel that it would go against my project: music and time. Getting back the time to do things. So I decided to do all the sound recording by myself, as I'd already done on one of my records. It's a method that I want to be almost "home-made", where you look for the best sound with the best elements: the right guitar, the right effects, the right tube amp, the right microphones, the right microphone preamp (also tube), the right cables, the right audio interface, the right microphones placements... You slowly shape the sound of the record. You become a sound luthier. It's a recipe that you prepare, patiently. It's alchemy. And it's this work of patience that I want to return to you, warm, lively, and above all comfortable to listen to: that of a musician who has taken the time to try and get the best out of himself. So that you, as well, can listen to it in peace and quiet and enjoy for a moment a return to a more suspended time.

After these sound recordings, and the editing, I will go to the studio for mixing and mastering, for a duration of about 5 days, certainly during the month of September 2020.

And finally, when the time is right, the record will be released digitally and physically on a label that will be able to accompany me in its promotion and distribution.

It's a long process, and a great challenge, but I've decided to take it up. Those who know me a little bit know that when I've decided on something, I go all the way. So there will be a Steve Reich monograph on guitar. And it will be you who made it possible.

Thank you in advance, and I'll see you soon,

Pierre

A musician's Life

Biography

French classical & electric guitar(s) performer

Pierre Bibault is a multifaceted French classical and electric guitarist. He has performed in more than 25 countries, and in many prestigious venues: Radio France, Philharmonie de Paris, Flagey in Brussels, Wigmore Hall in London.

As a soloist, he explores contemporary music: written, improvised, with electronics, or sounds transformed in real time, and handles his guitars as well as samplers, loopers and computers. He works closely with today's composers, many of whom have dedicated their guitar works to him. Among them: Zad Moultaka, Thierry Pécou, Jeffrey Holmes.

He has just completed the recording of the integral for electric guitar by the American minimalist composer Steve Reich (1936-), who will celebrate his 85th birthday on October 3, 2021. The program of the disc has been validated by the composer himself, and the disc is to be released on October 1st on the French label Indésens Calliope.

Since 2018, he has been an additional musician (classical and electric guitars) for the Ensemble Intercontemporain, under the direction of Matthias Pintscher. With the Ensemble he was able to collaborate with many essential composers and composers of the international contemporary scene (Olga Neuwirth, Rebecca Saunders, James Dillon) and explore a wide repertoire, ranging from psychedelic rock written by Frank Zappa to music for the film Die Start Ohne Juden by Olga Neuwirth published and broadcast on Arte. In 2019, the Ensemble invited him as a soloist for the French premiere of the concerto for guitar by H.W. Henze Ode an Eine Äolsharfe, at the Philharmonie de Paris.

He is a permanent member of the Ensemble Variances by Thierry Pécou, which he joined in 2017 (Rouen Opera, Radio France Presences Festival, Wigmore Hall in London, Salle Cortot in Paris, etc.). During the various Covid lockdowns, the Ensemble transformed its concerts season, and in particular its 2020-2021 residency at the Salle Cortot, into concert-recordings, all available on YouTube. A recording of performed works (François-Bernard Mâche, Thierry Pécou, Jeffrey Holmes) was also released on the label Ohuaya in spring 2021.

Since 2020, he is an additional musician (classical and electric guitars) for the Philharmonic Orchestra of Radio France, and has performed under the direction of great conductors: Kent Nagano, Maxime Pascal.

He is a Doctor of Arts, and the author of a thesis Gesture and a Gesture Extraction Process in Zad Moultaka's Music for Solo Guitar.s: A Performer's Perspective, VUB / KCB, 2021, 415 p.

He is the Artistic Director of the International Guitar Festival in Béarn since its creation in 2017, and has been a Project Advisor and Supervisor for the Paris Guitar Foundation from 2014 to 2018.

Pierre Bibault is a Professor at the Paris Conservatories (Holder, Cat. A), in the 12th and 16th arrondissements, as well as a Teacher-Researcher at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel. He frequently gives Masterclasses and Conferences in France and abroad.

Pierre Bibault est un guitariste classique et électrique français aux multiples facettes. Il a joué dans plus de 25 pays, et dans de très nombreuses et prestigieuses salles : Radio France, Philharmonie de Paris, Flagey à Bruxelles, Wigmore Hall de Londres.

En tant que soliste, il explore les musiques contemporaines écrites, improvisées, avec électronique, ou de sons transformés en temps réel, et manie aussi bien ses guitares que les samplers, loopers et ordinateurs. Il travaille en étroite collaboration avec les compositeurs d’aujourd’hui, dont plusieurs lui ont dédié leurs oeuvres pour guitare. Parmi eux : Zad Moultaka, Thierry Pécou, Jeffrey Holmes.

Il vient de terminer l’enregistrement de l’intégrale pour guitare électrique du compositeur minimaliste américain Steve Reich (1936-), qui fêtera ses 85 ans le 3 octobre 2021. Le programme du disque a été validé par le compositeur lui-même, et le disque est à paraître le 1er octobre sur le label Indésens Calliope.

Depuis 2018, il est musicien supplémentaire (guitares classique et électrique) pour l’Ensemble Intercontemporain, sous la direction de Matthias Pintscher.

En 2019, l’Ensemble l’invite comme soliste pour la création française du concerto pour guitare de H.W. Henze Ode an Eine Äolsharfe, à la Philharmonie de Paris.

Il est membre permanent de l’Ensemble Variances de Thierry Pécou, qu’il a rejoint en 2017 (Opéra de Rouen, Festival Présences de Radio France, Wigmore Hall de Londres, Salle Cortot à Paris, etc.). Durant les différents confinements Covid, l’ensemble a transformé sa saison de concert, et notamment sa résidence 2020-2021 à la Salle Cortot, en concerts-captations, tous disponibles sur YouTube. Un disque des oeuvres interprétées (François-Bernard Mâche, Thierry Pécou, Jeffrey Holmes) est également paru sur le label Ohuaya au printemps 2021.

Depuis 2020, il est supplémentaire (guitares classique et électrique) pour l’Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, et a joué sous la direction de grands chefs : Kent Nagano, Maxime Pascal.

Il est Docteur des Arts, et l’auteur d’une thèse Gesture and a Gesture Extraction Process in Zad Moultaka's Music for Solo Guitar.s: A Performer's Perspective, VUB/KCB, 2021, 415 p.

MIRRORS

A Solo Avant-Garde Program

Gesture. Body. Movement.

In this solo program, Pierre BIBAULT explores different perspectives of contemporary music for guitar(s). The harshness of the sounds of the electric guitar contemplates the crystal sound of the classical guitar. One and the other are looking each other into a mirror, in which the two faces form one and the same reality, and where acoustic sounds intermingle with prerecorded, live or gesture self-generated electronic sounds.

This concert offers a unique experience of Avant-Garde pieces for Classical and Electric Guitar by Tristan MURAIL, Hugues DUFOURT, Fausto ROMITELLI and Zad MOULTAKA, that the Performer puts in perspective, alternating his playing from one instrument to the other.

The concert also proposes the premiere of Kahraba, a new work for Electric Guitar by Zad MOULTAKA, commissioned by Pierre BIBAULT. The piece is exploring a new kind of music notation, more articulated around Gesture, movement and sound than on notes. Kahraba is not only a Musical work: it is also a piece of Art staying in Beirut, Lebanon, engraved in copper by the composer during the writing process, in the manner of old printing press. This technics induces a reverse writing by the Composer / Art Engraver, reminding not only the Mirror wanted by Pierre BIBAULT, but also the Arabic mother tongue writing of the composer.

The concert ends on a unique work combining composition and improvisation, where the Performer is connected to the computer by motion sensors. His own instrumental gesture generates a variety of electronic sounds in real time, with which he will interact. The binarity between the performer and the machine finds its unity in a new sound proposal.

An auditory and a visual journey, an exploration of the senses. Welcome to modernity.
