The human body is probably the oldest musical instrument. Clapping the thighs, clicking the tongue, snapping the fingers, stomping the ground, whistling and hitting the buttocks: a range of sounds can transform the body into a rhythmic instrument. By using a fun and progressive approach, this practice develops the sense of rhythm and coordination. Rémi Leclerc from the ensemble Humanophones has the pleasure to share and pass on his art, which is based on an anatomic mix of dance, intercultural body grooves and music. Participants should have visited the beginner workshop and/or have a good practice of body percussion, an instrument, singing, or dancing.
Rémi Leclerc is the founder and artistic director of Humanophones. He studied acoustics and is a passionate pianist. He is trained in classical music, jazz and improvised music and was taken under the wings of Leon Parker. Leclerc then introspectively sought his personal approach to body music establishing bridges between the dancing body and the musician body in order to create music integrated by the human body: Music without borders, which addresses everyone.
