PERTURBATION LOCOMOTIVE is a matter in continuous movement, whose inertia make to appear mistakes which will go little by little make it divert of its initial path. The machine started, it is rotate and speed up, the vibrations collide with each other in created interferences and beatings. The music slow the time down as it widens the space.

LOVEMUSIC + CHRISTOPHE IMBS “ELEKTRISH”
“As I floated down impassive Rivers,
I felt myself no longer pulled by ropes”
The hyperactive collective lovemusic and the pianist Christophe Imbs (electrified for the occasion!), artists from different musical backgrounds, join forces for the first time for this sound research project. On top of the sound of a Fender Rhodes, pushed to it’s limits with effects, long hypnotic and melodic lines are constructed by flutes and clarinets.
Electro / jazz influences mix seemlessly with the acoustic sounds of the two founding musicians of lovemusic, always eager to discover the interpretative possibilities of their instruments and to explore new creative collaborations by pushing the boundaries between musical genres.
Set sail on an unusual musical journey…
Premier of a new composition by Christophe Imbs written especially for Musiques Eclatees.
Between hypnotizing sounds landscapes and captivating instrumentals plans, the meeting of HANATSUmiroir duo and composer ErikM skim the Japanese mythology of Yokay (ghosts, monsters, bewitched). It is an amplified bass flute, objects of sound and electromagnetic lute-making sometimes luminous, interferences of powers and waves, all of this manipulated and reprocessed by the electronic device “Idiosyncrasie” of ErikM.
THE ORIGIN :
The meeting happened on Drum-Machine created by the Strasbourg’s Percussions in 2016. The particular work of ErikM on the reformulation of instrumental gestures proposed by the artists and shaping again, his art of deconstruct and construct again in another way, the sound hierarchies of an overall sound, gave to the duo the desire to play with him.
The creation made it in a long time, in order to apply, that he name, of dynamic composition. It is a sounds and instrumentals materials process that the artists give it to him in order to go well in its tessitura and its development in the time. This hybrid shape seems like a writing set : a more formal writing is here, for analogy, more a composition at the mixing desk. What more logical for an acousmatic music composer and an improviser frees to transpose his practice in an augmented instrumental version. Of this processes, born a practice more free where the performers earn in creativity, in link with musicals problematics of our time.
Echoplasm is a mixt piece, which is nourish of a ghostly imaginary, inspired by tales and Yokai legendes.
VOIX DE STRAS’

CLAIRE TROUILLOUD AND AURELIEN SAUER
GOING FOR A WALK
It’s sometimes like that a good story begin : going for a walk. So when two musicians of Ensemble de l’Ill take a hike, we travel with them all over the world. Other landscapes feed the hopes, loves and sorrows. The man, the woman and the child just as much sing there. It moves, it refocuses, too.
One of them plays with her vocal cords, and the other one, with rubbed cords. They are inspired by traditions of different parts of the world, transform its and invent a dialog mixed in improvised part, in composed part. From Iran, Mongolia, the Appalachians, France or Scotland, the different melodies succeed each other, strange or familiar. They sing to voice and viola, or call for an instrumentarium made with bric-à-brac that both musicians enjoy to manipulate. Eclectic, M’allant promener improves a pronounced taste for the discovery, keeps a mystery part and maintains inside itself something from childhood…
GEROGES APERGHIS : LE SON EN MOUVEMENT
Ensemble of soloists formed around Françoise Kubler and Armand Angster, Accroche Note invests the repertoire of contemporary music.
Every program decides of the personality and the number of musicians which constitute the ensemble. The flexibility of its number – as solo to chamber ensemble – allows it to approach with different projects, the historic pages, the instrumental and vocal literature of 20th century as well as contemporary and improvised music.
For many years, the ensemble commissions new works in close collaboration with the composers. The ensemble is regularly invited in many national musical seasons, as well as in the major international festivals of contemporary music.
The contemporary Argentina gets this roots in the diversity of popular music which are never stop to renew. From tango viejos to tango nuevos, each new generation of composers has known to get its inspiration in the work of the previous generations and in the plurality of identity which form the argentin population. RE/SONO pays tribute to argentine music in a contemporary program, with tangos tinted of french, italian, spanish and arab accents. In the form of contemporary argentine music exploration, RE/SONO presents an original program, with sonorities which play with the tradition in instilling the modernity, with roots from the past, and looking to the future.
CABARET SONGS PARIS 1919 – BERLIN 1933
Mix of voice and piano, the Duo Absinthes invites you to a journey at the beginning of 20th century, between Paris and Berlin, in the ambivalent atmosphere of cabarets. At the day after the WW1, the Europe was born again of its ashes; a wind of freedom and anticonformism breezes on the youth. Paris and Berlin know a creative tumult renewed. All nightlife bunch rubs shoulders together, with drunkenness in this shady world. In Paris, composers like Milhaud are influenced by jazz; in Berlin this were Hollaender or Spoliansky who set in music, the lightness and emancipation while Weill, still engaged, reveals the darkness which hide this hedonism. Because the Europe dance on a volcano, and soon the boots sound will silence the sound of fox-trot. With elegance and mind, the Duo Absinthes draws the portrait of a multiple, modern, assert itself and eccentric femininity up.
“When, in 1928, Maurice Martenot created for the first time the Ondes Martenot which its make him famous, he didn’t suspect that 80 years later, a little red-haired smuggler tried hard to cross the borders of his invention, synthesizer’s ancestor.” (Les Inrockuptibles).
Christine Ott published three albums whose “Only Silence Remains”. Of classical training, soloist in operas and famous festivals, she has also rolled with Yann Tiersen, and has cooperated with Tindersticks, Radiohead or Jean-Philippe Goude.
