Der letzte Teil einer Trilogie. Die Idee RENCONTRES FORTUITES, DIDASCALIES und TAUTOLOGOS III – verschidene Klavier-, Viola- und Elektronikwerke – zu einem Werk zu verbinden ereignete sich bei einem Konzert in Brüssel, an dem Collard-Neven und Royer zuammen mit Ferrari DIDASCALIES aufführten. Die Aufnahmen fanden in den Brème Studios und in La Muse in Paris statt. DIDASCALIES ist einer der letzten Aufnahmen von Luc Ferrari, der 2005 verstarb.

Luc Ferrari facing his tautology: two days before the end

Luc Ferrari takes out an old score, Tautologos III, to record it at La Muse en Circuit in the summer of 2005. The “score” is actually a set of three rules: 1. Each musician freely decides on a theme an length of silence to be repeated for 21 minutes 2. Each musician can fanatically stick to his choice or change it according to what the other musician is playing 3. Well, there is no third rule. The whole thing is to be recorded several times in a row, in layers, and supported by a tape part consisting of the stupidest sounds possible, in order to beef up the sound mass of the piece, for no particular reason. Sounds easy, right ? Well it was not. The first layer was successfully recorded during the first 21 minutes of recording, but it took almost two days for Luc and the musicians – Jean-Philippe Collard-Neven and Vincent Royer – to record the second one. The third layer, like the cherry on top of a sundae, will consist in books forcefully closed every two and a half minutes. Luc died a little over a month after this experiment. It turned out to be his last game.
