As a composer, Cécile Broché proposes a completely original and personal approach to the violin. Drawing her inspiration from her encounters and a varied career, she explores the potential and the possibilities so particular to the electric violin; rhythms, melodies, sound images, unsuspected palette… It is also a meeting of music and sounds of everyday life. On stage, the violin underlines them, opposes them, pulses. It is simply a story, the story of life, told with sounds.
