Red Note Ensemble European tour begins in Orleans

Red Note Ensemble and LOD Music Theatre are touring François Sarhan’s Lâchez Tout! around Europe in 2014 and 2015. The tour starts tonight in Orleans at

François Sarhan, composer in residence at the National Theatre in Orleans between 2009 and 2012 is a cellist, composer, author, encyclopaedist, and a creator of stop motion animation and film.

Lâchez Tout! is a concert and silent film with live music, actors and two Foley (film soundeffect) artists, with François Sarhan himself performing on stage. Circassian actor Claudio Stellato plays Bobok, the central character of the film, and the Foley Artists create the sounds of the doors slamming, the footsteps and the passing trucks.

Lâchez Tout! is a total experience, halfway between a detective story and a philosophical tragicomedy.
