Elisabeth Valletti has been doing a ten-day residency at the GRM (Groupe de Recherche Musicale, created by Pierre Schaeffer in 1958), at the Maison de Radio-France in Paris - with Camac's MIDI harp. What she is working on is called "The Sacrum", and here are some words from Elisabeth herself about this - like all her work - fascinating project.
"I work. I work. Studio 116 is wonderfully ghostly, and so favorable for working. What comes out of what I do, I do not know. I am inside the process. I have no distance. I will need some time to rest my ears, to hear more clearly. I dive into the sound like never before because I work surrounded by eight huge speakers. And as I do not disturb anybody when the sound is powerful, I deeply enjoy these moments.
