A concert made possible by the support of the Mick Goodrick Foundation


With this duo, the interdisciplinary French vocalist Clotilde and the acclaimed American and Brooklyn-based pianist and keyboardist Chris McCarthy deepen their New-York born collaboration.

Both inspired by the Beat Generation poets they create Pieces of a Song, a repertoire of rageous yet ecstatic original pieces in French and in English infused with the tender and subversive writings of the idiosyncratic Beat Generation poetess Diane di Prima. 

To create a work that we can all relate to, accessible yet provocative, they intertwine their creative visions, where poetry meets hip-hop, spoken-word meets contemporary improvisation.

With this repertoire, they aim to explore the identity crisis brought out of poverty, of rebellion, of being a woman, of standing on the outside of the culture, of making bold choices in an always more constraining world. 


“FREE them / FREE yourself / Help to FREE me / FREE us / DANCE” - Diane di Prima - Revolutionary Letter 49


Pieces of a Song has been made possible through the Jazz & New Music, a program of FACE Foundation, in partnership with the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States. 


Line up: Clotilde (vocal, flute) // Chris McCarthy (piano, prophet)
