Live - Techno Orchestra
SATURDAY 22 NOVEMBER 2014
BÂTIMENT DES FORCES MOTRICES
A trio of confirmed musicians will illuminate with all its radiance the prestigious venue of the BFM, geniuses of our time mixing genres with virtuosity, bringing academic instruments back into the electronic world. Brandt Brauer Frick will breathe the last breath of this edition, sounding the acousmonium till next year.
Brandt Brauer Frick, a trio made up of Daniel Brandt, Jan Brauer and Paul Frick has been active since 2008 and has already published 3 albums, released on the very prolific and renowned label IK7. The formation has made a name for itself thanks to its ability to reproduce techno without technology, using only classical instruments instead of the usual synthesizers or computers. They have succeeded in restoring to some extent the prestige of somewhat infamous techno music. From very obscure clubs to very classical concert venues, from Coachella to the Montreux Jazz Festival, from Mutek to Sonar, from the Pompidou Centre to Berghain, the three artists have put the planet at their feet. Their latest album, Miami, released in 2013, is filled with multi-coloured collaborations with among others Jamie Lidell and Om’Mas Keith.
From time to time the group welcomes other musicians and then takes the qualifier Ensemble. It will be the original devastating trio however that will have the honour to close the 4th edition of the festival in a perfect match with the acousmonium, beautifully closing the musical loop in a breath-taking environment.
