Moriarty : Création autour de Robert Doisneau

Pour cette création unique, les Moriarty prolongeaient sur scène la bande sonore qu’ils avaient réalisée pour l’exposition Doisneau et la musique, présentée à la Philharmonie du 4 décembre 2018 au 28 avril 2019, accompagnés de projections vidéo. En prélude à ce concert, (re)découvrez notre rencontre avec Stephan Zimmerli, scénographe, dessinateur et musicien du groupe Moriarty 👉 https://youtu.be/g9_4XrmPRXw

Rosemary Standley – the magnetic Mademoiselle Moriarty

Devoted to cultivating creativity & imagination. Dedicated to philosophers, pilgrims & punks.

ROSEMARY STANDLEY is the lushly imaginative Franco-American lead singer of the enormously creative band Moriarty. The instruments they play reads like a recipe list for the best possible musical feast: xylophone, thumb piano, spoons, tambourine, scotch-tape trumpet, double-bass, music box, suitcase drum, chromatic and diatonic harmonicas, kazoo, drilling machines, Jew’s harp.

 The band’s maverick spirit leads them to play incongruous venues such ‘a mental institution, a prison, a transatlantic ship, a ruined castle in Tuscany, the streets of Paris, and a night train’.  Being the bohemian vagabonds that they are, they tour extensively.

He had a gig there with his band and he asked me to sing the song in the middle of the set. The people were so pleased with the song that they asked for it 3 times. What a funny feeling! You just get addicted to it.
