Musique d’art pour cor, trombone, tuba et électronique

Simon Martin’s Concert Music for Horn, Trombone, Tuba and Electronics is an ode to the purity and sumptuousness of the brass ensemble: a time to pause in the intangible, a ritual imbued with intimate reflection.




In the magnificent church of the Gesù, the German trio Zinc & Copper will make the space resonate with strength and solemnity. Written entirely in natural intonation, the music will create amazing psycho-acoustic phenomena. Projected by loud speakers, the sound of amplified instruments is combined with that of sine waves. The audience, which surrounds the musicians, finds itself at the centre of the vibrations. Art music for Horn, Trombone, Tuba and Electronics is a theatrical work that preserves, in part, the ambitions and grand forms of post-romanticism.

This concert is presented in collaboration with Innovations en concert.
