A musical and spatial odyssey by Cyril Hernandez, created in 2007 at Chalon Street Festival. A musician, a percussive conjurer, a capturer and manipulator of sounds, leads you on an electro-cosmic voyage. Accompanied by a rocket of sound and its satellite, he’ll introduce you to the galactic universe of Calderophone. You will oscillate to the Marcelophone, undulate to the sounds of the Larcenophone, you’ll plunge into the vibrations of the Liquid Planet and dance to the beat of the bogus-totem. From one station to the next, the space you travel bends itself to the rhythms of a chaotic carnival.

A musical and dance performance, site specific created the 17th May 2015 for the Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye .The dancer Caroline Baudouin and the percussionist Cyril Hernandez are facing to the lines and perspectives of this “machine à habiter”, built on pilotis. They play with the echo of the volume and the materials used by Le Corbusier (concret and glass), in order to redraw the space; revealing it with the help of the public which follows them in this unusual walk.

For many years, Cyril Hernandez has played and worked with water. Whenever he dips his hands into the water and strokes it in a kind of primitive yet daily gesture, he makes the element sing. With the help of the recording and live electronic system, water becomes a real instrument.
With this sound and visual installation, Cyril Hernandez puts the viewer face to face with the element. This time it’s the spectator’s movements that transform the sound and image.
At the center of the device, a half sphere, a tank filled with water, seems to be listening to our dreams and fantasies. Now the visitor becomes like a new narcissus, so the game can start.

Recent scientific work has shown that fire does not starts from two flints rubbed against each other, nor from materials such as wood, coal or oil. No, flame starts from the meeting between three musicians, Ugo Boscain with his bass clarinet who provides the fuel, Tristan Macé with his bandoneon, who is feeding it, and finally Cyril Hernandez and his percussions, the firestarter. This is why this jazz trio was borned. To warms our hearts
Toque is a contemporany dance show that brings the saga of the human being between the solitude, the encounter and otherness.
The show brings to the stage, a language that floats between sensibility and contrasts of the body movement, the path to search for individual difference and also the difference that reaches each other. The touch of bodies, the beating of drums, the reaching the audience. Using the language of urban and contemporary music and dance, the show unites three artist from different nationalities and separate walks of life, bringing to the stage the saga of the weakened man, affected by his bruised sight.
