Spring Newsletter 2013
Spring 2013 is here, and I’m very happy to introduce my new project, « Don’t worry, be haRpy ! » in the United States and in France.
This new project will take place during a 3 year period with different partners in Europe and in the USA, and there will be events around composing, performing and teaching.
Writing a Jazzoper(h)arp is very exciting. Building an artistic bridge between France and Chicago is amazing too. The story is freely inspired by « The Baron in the Trees » by Italo Calvino and its theme of paradox between nature and civilization.
The first step is with a trio consisting of harp, double bass and drums, with no text. One hour of natural noises from nature and civilization will be a part of the music around the four seasons. The original music with acoustic and electronic sounds combines imagination, universality, love, and travels. The artistic team is Marc Buronfosse/ Larry Gray – double bass, Fabrice Moreau/ Paul Wertico – drums, Céline Grangey –sound engineer, and me on two harps.
The Kickstarter project will be on line for one month in April, and it’s goal is to reach $5000US. The first gigs will be in Chicago on June 2nd and 21st, and in France on May 26th in Grosrouvre and on July 27th in Chamarande Other concerts on my website www.isabelleolivier.com
