“Indicible” is a particularly introspective 5 track EP where notes take the place of words and images, focused on the work of memory with an essential place given to childhood. Each track draws its essence in a series of difficult and significant events in her life as a child and teenager that have sharpened her sensitivity, her conscience and triggered the need to compose this EP to try to bring to light the unspeakable. It echoes the work of Annie Ernaux (Nobel Prize for Literature 2022), a writer whose work has always inspired her and who explains that she started writing about her personal experiences because “a book can contribute to change in private life, help to shatter the loneliness of experiences endured and repressed, and enable beings to reimagine themselves”: Bon Coeur truly believes that is the same approach for music and that what she wishes to transmit here. The recording in studio required a particularly intense work to be able to incarnate each note and to retransmit as well as possible its intention and its emotions. The listeners are thus invited to plunge into a tender, sensitive and softly melancholic universe with a work built as close as possible to the piano in order to rediscover the softness, the purity and the vulnerability of childhood.
French pianist and composer Dorothée Troubat aka Bon Coeur (Lyon) captures the emotions, imagery and poetry of the moment with her piano compositions.
For as long as she can remember, she has been fascinated by the magical link between music and image. Her synesthetic sensory perception, including the association of colours with musical notes and harmonies, fuels her creativity when composing. Drawing inspiration from all forms of artistic expression, including film, literature and painting.
Coming from a family of music passionates where everyone played an instrument, she was immediately fascinated by the piano. She started playing classical piano at the age of 6 and never stopped.
Bon Coeur started composing only a little later. Intuitively in the first place, and then by taking lessons in composition, harmony and orchestration.
Classical music was an important part of her early education and is a major source of inspiration (she is particularly obsessed with Ravel’s Concerto in G, Beethoven’s Apassionata and Bach’s Goldberg variations) as well as cinematic contemporary music like Patrick Watson, Philip Glass, Alexandre Desplat and Yann Tiersen.
