A series that transforms concerts into a variant of the voice is obliged to dismantle the mechanisms of a ritual that has not managed to break free from the fetishes of show business. Nowadays, the idea of a concert, the act of summoning people to a public space to listen to something, demands an analytical reflection without concessions. What is at stake is the only possibility of lucidity we can allow ourselves, dissent.

An old philosophical problem speaks to us of the difficulty of the voice as a living expression of language (the voice of death, Hegel, the voice of conscience, Heidegger, the split between
showing and saying, Wittgenstein, the voice as invisible harmony, Heraclitus...). But this subject, supposedly arid and closed to the field of the specialist, has come back to the fore with a new fissure between thinking and saying on the occasion of the emergence of social networks: the profusion of messages, anonymity, fake news, futile speeches... all this invites us to resort to critical thinking with new vigour and forcefulness.
