Véra Molnar - ni queue ni tête
Ni queue ni tête is gathered an original drawing by Vera Molnar with a musical composition by Jean-Yves Bosseur
At the end of the ‘50’s, Véra Molnar created a series of inclined segments linked together at the top and bottom, by using a data processing programme.
Coming back to this work later on, the artist presented a piece resuming the totality of her research on the line, disorder, widening and shrinking.
Jean-Yves Bosseur, composer and musicologist, has studied the graphic structure proposed by Véra Molnar in order to adapt and transcribe it musically in the form of a partition for the harpsichord. What he explored goes beyond a simple musical adaptation: he created a musical vocabulary that echoes Véra Molnar’s formal project.
