Pierre Boulez’s “Répons”

The renowned Ensemble Intercontemporain perfoms, in the round, its late founder Pierre Boulez’s rarely staged Répons, scored for chamber orchestra, six percussion soloists, and live electronics. The title refers to the call and response between the acoustic music played by the soloists and the real-time digital transformation of those sounds. The performance is part of a series of events presented in conjunction with “The Sense of Sound (Le Sens du Son),” a conference hosted by New York University’s Center for French Civilization.
