« Foreign instruments – plugged or unplugged – have been deterritorialized and inserted in the symphonic sphere. They are here, ready to distort the traditional image of the orchestra, influencing its physiognomy, electrifying the timbre. Eventually they will build intermediate spaces or bridges between the acoustic world and the loudspeakers,More solos and polyphonic situations might emerge from the shaken orchestral framework, sometimes forming freaks and thrilling ambiguities – whilst saturated colors, complex sounds and hybrid textures will definitely shape the musical drama. » Franck Bedrossian
