The perineum's chant - Psycho-erotic conference
 
''- Did you know that the first microgroove was in invented in an egyptian pyramid ?
- Why do singers with high-pitched voices send girls in a panic ?
- Is the expression ''Dumb like a tenor'' justified by the laws of acoustic ?
- How did Robespierre's execution start the birth of Jazz ?''
 
André Manoukian, alone on piano, provides answers to these fundamental questions.
 
He reveals the secrets of the great composers, and shows how to express feelings in music.
 
Through his love affairs sowed with muses, sirens and catastrophes, including in turn Pythagoras or Claude Francois, he retells with his whacky erudition a history of music as you've never heard it. 
 
You''ll never listen to Sheila the same way !

Apatride - "Stateless"

"My grand-parents were chased from their home country, Armenia. For a long time I remained allergic to its excesses, its sugar and its passion.
Until the reunion, around a piano one day. "Could you play something from Armenia?"
A vague melody I heard from my grand-mother, played with a wavering finger...
"Sounds like Erik Satie..."
And here I am, exploring new musical territories, with the help of sacred Iranian drums, a Turkish cello player, a Syrian singer, an Armenian duduk, and "Alaturka" rythms, repelling the mental frontiers to draw the outline of a paradise lost somewhere in between Vienna and Samarkhande, searching for sparkles of spleen, to reconnect, for the time of a concert, the sould of my ancesters.
 
 

The voices of rising

The magic of a voice is to make us perceive the sacred.

Music is the last repository of a magic, which nowhere else but in the East is as perceptible.

André Manoukian takes us to the Levant of his ancestors, guided by the Balkanes who mixed their Bulgarian voices with the Armenian duduk, the Indian tablas and the atmospheric jazz of his quartet.
