A completely new combination of maqams from the Maghreb and ragas from India
 
Moroccan oudist Driss el Maloumi likes to combine his extraordinary mastery of oriental maqams with other world musics. Debashish Bhattacharya, the gifted inventor of the Calcutta slide guitar, tours with world with his three guitars and his unique adaptations of traditional Hindustani ragas. When they meet in Naghma, which means "musical craze" in both Arabic and Urdu, maqams and ragas draw from the shared origin of their respective musicalities, the spirituality that has shaped the extraordinary musical wealth of these two cultures.

A blend of jazz, early music and Iranian Kurdish song.

Renaud Garcia-Fons is a world-famous virtuoso of the double bass whose inimitable style is influenced by music from all over the world. With Djânân he enters a new phase in his quest to establish links between different cultures. Struck by the communicative fervour of the music of Razbar, a ensemble of Iranian Kurdish origin, Renaud Garcia-Fons came up with this collaboration, which is open, respectful of tradition and its religious nature, and enriched by elements borrowed from early music and
jazz.

From baroque religious works to improvisation

Taking religious works by Rameau, Couperin, Gesualdo, Purcell and others as its starting point, this project takes the form of a dialogue between two groups of musicians who mirror each other. The virtuoso strings of Les Musiciens du Louvre meet the untethered spontaneity of the musicians of La Forge, adventurers in contemporary jazz. The Sound of the Heavens and the Darkness extends its gaze beyond the horizon, past the "line that appears to separate the Earth from Heaven."


Coproduction CIMN, Collectif La Forge, Musiciens du Louvre - Grenoble et Théâtre Durance - Château-Arnoux/Saint-Auban.


« L'HYMNE A LA DEMOCRACIE »
New Work by Das Kapital

What does democracy sound like?
Music accompanies revolts, and certain melodies and songs are identified as revolutionary symbols. However, these same songs later become pillars of conformism, as often happens with national anthems, which frequently begin their lives as songs of revolt and defiance.

Das Kapital, a dynamic trio on the free jazz scene, veterans of both improvisation and interpretation, invites us to revisit the hymns and songs of revolt, in the company of the rebel singer André Minvielle and with the help of the children’s choir of two classes from Fontaine, led by Brigitte Calvi.

"Greed"
New work by Alejandro Viñao/Temps Relatif

France/ Argentina

New work Thursday 29th 2012 - Amphithéatre/ Le Pont-de-Claix

Alejandro Vinao

electronics

Temps Relatif

vocal ensemble

Luc Denoux

conducting

 

Reflecting the recent global financial crisis, “Greed” is a compelling, original work that takes on its full meaning in the excesses of financial capitalism. The Argentine composer Alejandro Viñao evokes the intense desire for riches and power that characterises people in our contemporary society.

Although the show’s music is mostly inspired by popular dances, from hip-hop to the tango, the relationship to texts (money seen by Quevedo, Molière, Shakespeare and Marx) and to advertising slogans also gives Viñao precious material to create a compelling work for voice and electronics.

A unique project: the Octurn ensemble immerses itself in the authentic world of ritual chanting, as performed by the monks of Gyuto Monastery. The score written for Octurn’s musicians melts into these hypnotic states.


For this project, the Tibetan chanting monks have agreed to change their traditional way of working, with a view to exploring and experimenting with new techniques. This ritual chanting, introduces Octurn to an extremely sophisticated culture and philosophy which, though several thousand years old, is now threatened with extinction…
