Music for Trees : A Tribute To Garrett List


MUSIC FOR TREES a Tribute to Garrett List
Ex-professor then colleague, Garrett List, who worked with Anthony Braxton, John Cage, Mev, Morton Feldman to name but a few, sadly passed away two years ago. In the eighties, he wrote a beautiful suite of 24 pieces dedicated to 24 trees. 
As a tribute to the big man, WCM and Vivo decided to perform for the first time the complete suite (4 hours of music, in 4 concerts) which goes from symphonic orchestra to electronic music pieces. Every piece is introduced with a text by Paul Pacquay, read by Stage director Denis Mpunga. Adrien Lambinet and myself are the happy artistic directors of the project, arrangers of the pieces never performed before and violinist therapists.  More info here

Saxophone Mix for Ouiedire feat. Hector Arnau


After having been saved from Covid precarity with a composition grant, I considered I owe my native country (too often mocked by the French and by myself) something back. So, let’s bring to the fore the greatest Belgian instrument of all : The Saxophone. Here it is, babies, just for you : a Dixieland arrangement of my club music’s favorite in a rough & tumble 1-hour mixtape that swings a lot and hurts a bit, like in all good blues. That’s not all, on the way to reach the saxophone climax, we accidentally found the perfect brother for the fake brass when direct from Valencia City unexpectedly, Hector Arnau joined as the Karaoke Superstar of the party.

Hi-Fi vs Lo-Fi online


As part of the UI Pick (from the beloved Underground Institute), I did a 1hour mix/talk about Hi-fi vs Lo-fi on Miami’s Jolt Radio Using here the classic opposition Hi-fI – Lo-Fi to explore and put side by side two different kind of composers/worlds : Bedroom Music Composers (Lo-Fi) vs Chamber Music composers (Hi-Fi).
