Yet, Ambar was only the most successful of thousands o

Chacun cherche son son # 14

Chacun cherche son son # 14 | Feel India ! | Scoop.it
En janvier 2014 a eu lieu la 11ème Semaine du Son. A cette occasion la série de films Chacun cherche son Son met en avant des sons de science sous la forme de devinettes sonores. Autant de voyages dans le son à l ’ aune des connaissances scientifiques. Que raconte le son de cette quête des savoirs qui anime les chercheurs ? Que révèle-t-il du monde ? Que donne-t-il à entendre de ce qu ’ on ne voit pas ?
Dans ce onzième film, nous nous trouvons au Kerala (Inde du sud), dans le village de Peruvamba, où la famille de Ramachandran fabrique différents tambours (tabla, mrindingam, mandalam...) depuis plusieurs générations. La transmission d'un savoir-faire technique et artistique s'opère de père en fils, par le rythme, le mouvement, les regards, très peu par la parole. Célèbres pour leurs sonorités, les tablas réalisés par la famille Ramachandran attirent de nombreux musiciens et l'activité loin d'être en perte de vitesse, ne cesse de s'accroître. [Texte tiré de la notice du film De père en fils]
