La Chute

Underwater sounds: a floating ballet.

2000 (8′24″)

Belgian video artist Marie-Jo Lafontaine wanted to visually capture the aesthetics of the human body on and under water, this floating ballet.
In this respect, she created her various video installations ′La chute′ (2000) and ′Dark pool′ (2008), for which I wrote the small compositions ′La chute 1 – 4′. It was important for me to create an acoustic underwater world. Depressing, but at the same time fascinating, the bodies glide through the wet, floating, playful, but always pushing further and further.
