‘Firebird’ is the result of an interdisciplinary writing residency conducted in Autumn 2018, between Paris (France) and Charleroi (Belgium), within the framework of the European Pepinieres of Creation.
This hybrid project edited by the Transonic label in its series Sonopoetics associates a poetic notebook written by Christophe Bailleau with an album that he conceived as a series of free soundtracks for these surreal fragments.
