Workshop « interactions musicians/orchestra – machine (IRCAM-ONJ) » (Free, booking required) – EN

With Jérôme Nika (from IRCAM) and Frédéric Maurin (director of the ONJ)

The Orchestre National de Jazz and IRCAM present Ex Machina, a creation imagined by the American saxophonist Steve Lehman and Frédéric Maurin, artistic director of the ONJ; two composers who share a taste for exploring new musical territories.
This project is the result of a collaboration with the Musical Representations team at IRCAM and explores for the first time the possibilities of interaction between the instrumentalists and the machine within a large jazz orchestra.
By integrating devices created using Jérôme Nika’s DYCI2 environment in the composition process and in the soloists’ improvisations in real-time, the computer becomes, in turn, a generator of electronic orchestrations for the composers and an improvisation partner for the musicians.

Free, on reservation.

Workshop «Appréhender l’improvisation et ses fondamentaux» – FR
Conducted by Nicolas Souchal, trumpet player, improvisor and member of Le Fondeur de Son, in partnership with the french music school EDIM.
For many musicians in training, improvisation outside, or beyond, recognized styles (blues, jazz, traditional music, etc.) can seem destabilizing. Yet it is an essential component of musical expression and contemporary adventures. To experiment what happens when you immerse yourself in listening and playing with others, with the desire to let the unpredictable happen. In the words of Daunik Lazro and Nicolas Souchal: “As improvisers we aspire to the unpredictable, in a relationship of mutual trust. Each one, braced in the moment, is inhabited by the memory of countless music played, heard, dreamed of. Determined by instrumental practice, acquired experience, and by instinct and thought of one’s own.
10€, please contact EDIM for registration :
