Conference ‘Moondog throughout the 20th century’

NEWS


BIO

Specialist and above all passionate about the personality of Louis Thomas Hardin alias Moondog, Amaury Cornut has been working since 2009 to promote this singular composer. After having created the website www.fr-moondog.com, organized tribute concerts throughout France, and founded the ensemble Minisym to perform Moondog‘s music on stage, Amaury published in March of 2014 the French biography dedicated to the Viking of the 6th Avenue (ed. ‘Le Mot et le Reste’).

Throughout the conference entitled ‘Moondog throughout the 20th century‘, he reveals the links that exist between this little-known artist and some of the leading figures of the 20th century music: from Steve Reich to Elvis Costello, Janis Joplin, Leonard Bernstein and many jazzmen. With the help of unpublished photos and rare sound archives, this conference reveals this artist who, in the 1950s, was an emblematic figure on the streets of New York and an influence on his peers.

Listen to ‘Label Pop’ (Vincent Théval) on France Musique, a program dedicated to Moondog.
