After painting and sculpture, Old Masters carry on with their undertaking of reappropriation of the major arts using their modest art tools. Bande originale is thus a form of classical ballet that presents an original soundtrack, embellished with surtitled texts and a human presence.
The tragic power of the music suggests that the fundamental moments of our lives are not the events that accumulate in biographies and CVs. On the contrary, they are a surprising succession of seemingly innocuous moments that occur when and where we do not expect them.
