The second episode of a series of three concerts


Duration: 30 min

With Thierry Madiot

For several years, Lebanese artist Tarek Atoui has been building a multifaceted project based on the way deaf and hearing-impaired people perceive sound. WITHIN is a collaborative project that explores the act of listening, how instruments are built, how improvisations are conducted, how scores are written and the relationship with an audience. At the Quai des arts in Cugnaux, music instrument resulting from this research are exhibited and used in a series of concerts and workshops. Each concert is a unique performance. For the opening of the exhibition, Tarek Atoui gives a concert in which for the first time we will play solo.


Each concert is a unique performance. On September 29, for the second concert under the WITHIN project, Tarek Atoui joins forces with composer and sound artist Thierry Madiot. Both amateur and professional musicians, people with or without impaired hearing are invited to play on instruments presented in the exhibition using scores or improvising freely. After a few rehearsals, a concert will be performed.


Workshop, open and accessible to all, on Wednesday 26 September from 7pm to 10pm. To go beyond and be part of the concert, rehearsals are organised from Wednesday 26 to Friday 28 September. Information and registration at the Quai des arts: 05 81 60 82 62 /


The next and third concert will take place on October 20. More information here.
