Soirées Luc Ferrari

The Soirées Luc Ferrari is a two-day music festival that focuses on the work of the French composer Luc Ferrari, who was born in 1929 and died in 2005. Ferrari’s music moves between radio play, historical musique concrète pieces, sometimes trashy, sometimes serial, but also almost romantic piano music, radical noise music, crystal-clear fieldrecordings tape music, pseudo-serial composition and electronic music – and all this with a lot of humour, mischievousness and ambiguity.

With ErikM, electronics, Gilles Grimaitre, piano, Gaudenz Badrutt, electronics, Christophe Schiess (moderation), Estelle Beiner (workshop leader)
