QED #76



≡ January 2023 ≡


With the solstice stasis behind, the days are getting longer and time to roll up one’s sleeves for merry projets under construction. Now let’s see what’s blossoming for this already underway and committed new beginning.


Quod Erat Dictum. Ce Qu’il Faut Dire - Miano . Nordey - musique O. Mellano - MC93 Bobigny - 13-22 janvier 2023Ce Qu’il Faut Dire, the powerful words by Léonora Miano, directed by Stanislas Nordey and set to percussions by your servant, will be performed 10 times at the MC93 in Bobigny from January 13 to 22 with Gaël Baron, Océane Caïraty, Ysanis Padonou, Mélody Pini and the percussionist Lucie Delmas. An ode to fraternization, a political scene that straightforwardly interrogate the question of ‘colour’, while crossing over the history of the colonized ‘Africa’ and the colonizing capitalism…


Yugo - court métrage d'animation de Carlos Gómez Salamanca - musique O. Mellano…or Quod Erat Dissolutum, as demonstrated in YUGO, the many times awarded short-film by the Colombian film director Carlos Gómez Salamanca. A political movie that shows, during ten merciless minutes, the human, ecological and social ravages of the liberal economic system.An uppercut nominated for the Césars awards, on line at Arte TV.


Dernière Minute d'Adrien M & Claire B - Montréal - musique O. MellanoQuod Erat Detectum if you are in Montreal: Dernière Minute, the immersive installation by Adrien M & Claire B, still sparkling and sounding at the Centre Phi. A crossing through elements and moulting states of matter, an intimate but universal experience to walk on the luminous threshold of the first and last moment.


Défilé Issey Miyaké - installation Adrien M Claire B - musique O. MellanoCQui Fera Drôle, car une première pour moi, sera de mettre en musique un défilé de mode, celui d’Issey Miyake. Une nouvelle collaboration avec les sus-cités Adrien M & Claire B à qui la maison de couture japonaise a confié la scénographie de la présentation de sa nouvelle collection au Palais de Tokyo le 19 pour la Fashion Week. Il semblerait que l’événement soit diffusé en livestream à 11h30.


Quod Erat Demonstrandum : the ocean of paradoxes on which one must sail.

In this light, I wish you a radiant New Year, let it whisper to our ears what shall be rightly Disturbed, Defended, Decided, Desired, Deployed…


Olivier Mellano
