Nicole Renaud’s “Couleurs” original song cycle stands at the crossroads of French chanson, opera and performance art. It is a love story seen through colors. Accordéon-Accordéonistes raves, “In this album, Nicole Renaud’s sound is white as snow, pure, transparent, lyrical.”
With visual poetry in the same vein of Apollinaire’s Calligrammes, the soprano accompanies herself on a new one-of-a-kind, luminous transparent accordion, the lincordian, designed by British artist-engineer Paul Etienne Lincoln.
The scenic design and costume are by Parisian art director Jacques Perdigues, who has worked in the field of theater (Victoria Chaplin, Aurélia Thiérrée) and fashion (John Galliano, Thierry Mugler).
