Plastic Extension of Music is a new form of interpretation beyond the canonical or classical performance of music.

Plastic extension considers the musical performance as an incompleteness, a previous step, that creates a recollection and awareness of the different elements and codes issued from the score, the performance, and the interaction with the instrument. To then extend with the same hands; those elements, codes, ideas, practise and embodied knowledge on different media (painting, sculpture, performance, installation, film, engraving, printing…etc), creating new models and methodologies for music interpretation and plastic-visual art creations.

If you are interested in exploring and creating new art forms with your instrument but also unveiling information hidden in the score and your own performance, this is the place to begin.

Plastic Extension Workshop 23-24

Bertrand proposes to organize a series of collective and individual sessions to help you create a “Plastic Extension” of a solo piece of your repertoire during the next academic year and have an exhibition and concert of all the pieces and their respective “Plastic Extensions” in April/May 2024.
