/ Multidisciplinary performance


35 musicians with backgrounds in improvised music, contemporary classical music, jazz and experimental music. That’s the French orchestra ONCEIM, or Orchestra of New Creations, Experiments and Improvised Music. During Gaudeamus Festival they will present two performances they developed with equally versatile composers. An electroacoustic piece based on samples of the orchestra itself by composer/turntablist/visual artist Christian Marclay, who has previously worked with John Zorn and Sonic Youth, among others. And a performance about finding individuality within a group, by composer/theatre-maker/musician Genevieve Murphy.
