What is playing?

Playing, for a musician, is not reducible to the production of notes but involves entering into resonance with the movement of music through different levels of integration of the gesture. Between sounds and silences a “space in movement” wells up, creator of a new subjectivity, always “to be born” like the music itself. This opening into a new spatiality is favourable to the creation of a milieu where people can “grow together” while all remaining singular. The orchestra constitutes, in this regard, an ideal of harmony when guided by a leader able to coordinate the symphony of human rhythms as musical, out of the space of resonance in each one. So, we can see that playing is an act of freedom, revealing the human power of acting.
