Hommage au sauvage – Un portrait d’Henri Pousseur [DVD]

A journey into Henri Pousseur’s archives. “Over 15 years ago, the Basel-based Fondation Paul Sacher, which preserves archives related to 20th century music, sent its best expert, musicologist Dr. Albi Rosenthal, to Henri Pousseur’s home. Upon finding out the scope of documents Pousseur had kept, the musical antiquarian’s eyes almost POPPED OUT! Pousseur’s past, present and future archives are all donated to the Foundation: magnetic tapes, scores, correspondence, along with his most complex research work, the most obscure sound materials, the most random memos. For the fourth time, Henri leads the convoy en route to BaselŠ This film tells the tale of this last journey.”
