TACET, meaning it is silent, is a Latin term used in Western music to indicate to an instrumentalist that must remain silent during the entire duration of a movement or during a rather long fragment.
Silence, as a sound experience and a musical gesture, is revisited here with the help of new sound technologies, in a reinterpretation of medieval pieces and following in the footsteps of John Cage and Morton Feldman.
TACET is a part of the projects developed within PRISM laboratory (AMU-CNRS) as the topic "creations, practices and artistic researches".
