Luc Ferrari - Journal Intime

Written in the 1980s, Luc Ferrari’s Journal Intime is a music theatre piece based on his original diaries from the same period. The playful collage consists of spoken word, piano, singing and tape recordings of Luc’s music - as well as of his own voice. This recording of Journal Intime is a studio edit of the original theatrical score, featuring the pianist Rei Nakamura and the soprano Sarah Maria Sun. It is accompanied by a feature length music documentary film with the actress Lisette Malidor, the director Philippe Adrien, the singer Elise Caron and Brunhild Ferrari. On the tenth anniversary of Luc’s death in August 2005, this release aims quite literally to bring back his own voice – as well as to cast light on the contribution of his wife and long time collaborator, Brunhild.
