Kirili et les Nympheas is a recording of a live improvised performance by Jerome Bourdellon (flutes, bass clarinet), Thomas Buckner (baritone), Dalila Khatir (soprano), and Roscoe Mitchell (alto & soprano saxophones) that took place on June 21, 2007 during the "Fete de la Musique" that occurs all over France on the summer solstice. The performance took place at the Musee de l'Orangerie in the presence of Monet's iconic painting, "Les Nympheas" (Water Lilies), which had recently been installed in a room with a series of sculptures by Alain Kirili. The four musicians improvised upon the dialogue taking place between Kirili's sculpture and Monet's painting, responding both musically and kinetically.
