Inaugurated in 2007, L’Encyclopédie de la Parole is an artistic project that explores all aspects of vocal production, including cadence, choral work, emphasis or melody. These characteristics are collected and inventoried by a group of artists led by Joris Lacoste, forming a repertoire from which sound pieces, shows, performances or installations are produced.Parlement (2009) thus sought to vocally reproduce a partition made up of one hundred recordings of speeches. Suite No. 1, the first in a cycle of choral Suites, amplifies the scope of the challenge: under the direction of a conductor, a multilingual choir of eleven performers and eleven guests goes through highly varied speech situations – a TV game show, a conversation between friends or the babbling of children – exploring multiple registers, styles and languages to produce a poetic and vibrant monument to the expressive power of the spoken word.Suite No. 1, premiered during the 2013 Kunstenfestivaldesarts, will feature, along with Parlement, on the programme of the 2013 Paris Autumn Festival.
