Ce film propose la découverte de l'une des pièces les plus originales du répertoire contemporain pour piano : la pièce n° IX du Catalogue d’oiseaux d’Olivier Messiaen : La Bouscarle. Composée en 1956, cette pièce est caractéristique de l’oeuvre pour piano du compositeur : une inspiration non conceptuelle (ici la nature et les chants d’oiseaux) comme support aux audaces et aux inventions formelles de Messiaen. Ce film est aussi une évocation de la personnalité profondément originale du compositeur.

Man initially strikes up a dialogue with the world so as to interact with its myriad of sounds. While his response/copy is initially in sync with the source of the noise (rain, wind, thunder…), the dialogue then gradually withdraws to coax the sound back again. And then there was music! We’ve got the gods to thank here for starting our continuing, lyrical tradition of repeating this ritual of imitation. So when the composer returns to a motif, he is returning to these roots that are far off, but never fully forgotten.
