This CD, released on the occasion of "The Fairy Tale Factory" exhibition, contains the eight tales at the heart of the scenography imagined for the exhibition. These stories from traditional repertoires have been handed down orally over several generations and traveled across Europe, from the Mediterranean to Scandinavia and the Celtic countries to the Balkans. Rewritten in a contemporary version by the writer Fabrice Melquiot, these stories, performed by eight men and women storytellers aged from ten to ninety-nine, are presented in a sound setting composed by Gabriel Scotti who drew his inspiration from recordings conserved in the MEG's Archives internationales de musique populaire. The tales in music are followed by the eight musical tracks of G. Scotti's compositions. Included booklet presents the texts of the tales accompanied by drawings, paintings, and photographs of dioramas in paper cut-outs, done by Carll Cneut, Camille Garoche, Kalonji, and Lorenzo Mattotti, the four illustrators invited to bring these tales to life for the exhibition. Tales performed by: Olivier Chiacchiari, David Jakobowicz, Julie Henoch, Cyril Kaiser, Isis Lengo, Camille Mermet, Pauline Robert, Jean Vigny. Features guest musician: Raphael Daniel - bass clarinet.
