Here, there are stories under the ground. Noises. Echoes. Voices. Listen carefully and you will hear them. They ride along the slopes. They ride the morning mists. They linger after the sun has fallen behind the hills.
LaSauvage was written by Steve Toase and set to music by Eric Holm. This soundwalk is inspired by the legend of La Femme Sauvage, from which the village where it is located takes its name: a mysterious woman living in the surrounding woods, sometimes a healer, sometimes a witch.
The narrative was formed from several stories, which underwent a series of transformation processes inspired by those used in the extraction and working of iron. The industrial past of the region is thus at the heart of the texts, merging with the legends. The music gives rise to an intriguing atmosphere, transcribing the soul of the place and its hidden stories.
LaSauvage was created as part of the In the field project, for Esch2022, European Capital of Culture.
