A concert of improvised music for solo voice and digital lutherie. Laurence Moletta with her digital instruments creates music from voice games. She thus produces vocal textures that she superimposes to generate soundscapes on which she adds improvised melodies in imaginary language. An intimate atmosphere, a moment of escape, far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  No sound is recorded in advance, all the music is created live.
The intimacy of the singer's voice envelops the viewer, cradles him, whispers stories that only he can understand. Laurence provokes different voices, magical, diabolical, amorous characters, all provided with a specific imaginary language. She draws the public into a mysterious universe, which surprises the viewer with its originality and diversity.
On stage Laurence sings with a digital lutherie device, in the form of two motion-sensing gloves, a real-time composition instrument developed around instrumental gestures and designed to modulate the voice and not replace it. His vocal improvisations are constructed from the principle of accumulating loops of vocal textures into which melodies are inserted.
The improvising singer's sensor gloves control, among other things, the midi parameters of a looper, which allow her  to create vocal polyphonies with different  playing modes. She creates forms where she alternates the single voice and complex polyphonies by varying the range of possibilities of the human voice.

The singer, Laurence Moletta along with her curious digital instruments creates music with sounds from her mouth, creating vocal textures that she superimposes to generate sound landscapes on which she adds improvised melodies in imaginary language. No sound is previously recorded.


An emotional journey to meet our most primitive perceptions. Laurence Moletta uses her voice as a musical instrument, that is, she is no longer limited to words and the meaning of words. She uses a kind of imaginary language, made up of phonemes chosen for their musicality. It is kind of a return to a primitive language, which makes sense with the sensitivity of the voice.


On stage Laurence Moletta uses a digital lutherie device in the form of two gloves motion sensors that remotely control her computer and allow her to make vocal polyphonies and transform her voice in real time. A digital tool that was invented especially for her improvised vocal practice.


Laurence collaborates with video artist and designer Véronique BINST to create the visual universe of the concert. Veronique Binst visual artwork consists, by overlaying realtime video flows with pre-recorded ones ,  in creating a universe oscillating between microcosm and macrocosm.

Its live movie micro-studio allows to film a collection of object, solid, liquid textures. All these elements being associated with pre recorded videos of moving landscapes.

This universe, guided by  the musical structure and sonic landscapes, invents its rules to mix with the melody

The Corridor Of Lost Steps

Multidisciplinary show supported by digital technology. Sometimes tragic, sometimes burlesque.

 "Le Corridor Of Lost Steps"", performed and sung by Laurence MOLETTA, awakens in each of us the poetic or brutal memory of our intrauterine life and our birth.


Artistic Director: Laurence MOLETTA

Composer Singer Actress: Laurence MOLETTA

Author : Stéphane OERTLI


Video direction and creation: Stéphane BROC

Light and sound director: Benjamin DELLICOUR

The memory of the intra-uterine world fades as soon as we are born, a fantasized place where no one will ever return. No trace of it, if not the stories that reach us from our relatives, who experienced our coming into the world from the outside. Laurence Moletta has collected, through her encounters, stories, anecdotes of birth. This show revolves around a series of 12 stories on themes related to birth such as: the blue child; birth with deformity; blood incompatibility with the mother; unwanted child; between life and death; birth in a context of war; premature baby ; stillborn...


These stories in their raw state, have been taken up by the Author Stéphane Oertli and introduced into the musical universe of Laurence Moletta, they constitute the red thread of the show. They confront us with the idea that we are not equal from birth, the realities are sometimes tragic, sometimes comical.

We are witnessing a kind of pile-up of codes by an alternation of texts between burlesque, documentary realism and dreamlike.


Solo on stage: Laurence Moletta sings and interprets the texts of the birth stories. She uses on stage a digital lutherie device composed of sensors embedded on her body, in the form of two sensor gloves, which she created especially for her vocal practice. A device that allows him to remotely control the sound parameters in order to transform his voice in real time and create vocal polyphonies. No sound is recorded beforehand, Laurence Moletta creates the music for the show from her singing, spoken, whispered voice... she thus creates a whole vocal microcosm around the texts of the show.


Each text has its own music setting and conveys a particular atmosphere. A gallery of video paintings support these stories without illustrating them. We took the video material from home movies in Super 8, which we digitized and adapted to the form. A video creation by Stéphane Broc.


New project being created. "The lovers", sound poetry and gloved voice .... in collaboration with Blandine Scelles, poet and performer. 


It rubs, it stretches, it strikes, it increases, it diverts, it vibrates, it rings, it improvises...
