about

I) THE STORY :

This idea of a modern symphony for guitar is born in 2007 on the Joe Satriani's T2J board, following the collective albums Satchurated Feedback 1 & 2. Around two years have been required to find onto the web a team of 8 guitar players which accept, starting with the unity of two words, "Birds & Symphony", to work voluntarily together onto an international & collective project dedicated to the guitar. A first version has been realized in 2009, with an unachieved first movement. This is the definitive version.

Special thanx to Joe Satriani and Yngwie J. Malmsteen.

II) THE CONCEPT 8 :

Eight guitar players, 8 movements. One guitar player = one movement. We borrow to classical sinfonie idea two elements:

1) The diversity of timbres

2) The diversity of movements

Modern work, the diversity of timbres is produced with the variety of styles & tones expanded through the eight movements. Behind his symbolist libretto, Birds Believes proposes a plurality of the instrument's approachs.

III) THE LIBRETTO :

Birds Believes is a story about winged creatures & their singing.

Movement 1, "Dusk Hides inside Down" :

What is distinguishing dawn from dusk? What is separating night from day? A dawn here is always a dusk else.

Movement 2, "Dream of a Birdsong" :

Day's hatching, joy of first singing on the visible branch.

Movement 3, "Birds in Flight" :

Spreading one's wings, & flying rejoicing across the Sky.

Movement 4, "Murder in Full Flight" :

Irruption of the death, pain, & the fall on Earth.

Movement 5, "The Feast of the Buzzards" :

Interiorization of the idea of Death and conflicts near the corpse, big antagonist Day of the terrible crossing between Sky & Earth.

Movement 6, "The Raven's Head" :

Interiorization of native fate and willpower of fight for a Stay, despite of the Sky & Earth's tear, despite of the sovereign Night.

Movement 7, "Blue Colt":

The diurnal & nocturnal plenitude of the Sky and Earth flight, under a cosmic night.

Movement 8, "Winter Migration" :

The migration seasonal cycle is accomplished. The ultimate taking wing hangs from a dusk which is not the suspension of Night & Day's tears, but the Light of Nightfall, union of Sky & Earth inside Mystery.

"Dawndusk" _ Hölderlin.
