“Tribute to the Ear”
The piece is made of recordings documenting sound check situations of Moroccan Amazigh (Berbere) musicians. One can hear instruments such as the bendir, the lutar, the rebab, the zamar, the qsbah, as well as voices and a synthesizer being tuned, warmed up and rehearsed in various spaces. The piece is also a tribute to the ear and to the listeners, via the voice of the Amazigh poet Farid Zalhoud:
Tribute to the ear ! Hello to those gathered here ! I am happy having found beings who have harvested many songs. Tribute to the ear !
