Multifaceted nebula-band Aquaserge invents its own universe and musical codes from the merging of rock, jazz, song, pop, free, psychedelic and film music influences. In a nonet state and replying to the invitation of the Lieu Unique (Nantes, France), Aquaserge is currently creating a concert in connexion with masterpieces of the 20th century contemporary music.
In its creation called “Perdu dans un étui de guitare” (“Lost in a guitar case”), a rock-sounding contemporary piece concieved like a mise en abîme, Aquaserge immerses us inside eight pieces from E.Varèse, S. Reich, M. Feldman, G. Ligeti, G. Scelsi. The band knits links between the pieces through a work on voice and timbres, allowing itself to arrange, experiment and reinterpret the scores. Aquaserge plays with tags and rules confronting this facet of so-called serious music with their singular musical identity.
“Perdu dans un étui de guitare” is thought like a concert inseparable from its scenography, where lights, dramaturgy and physical commitment are driven by the dramaturge Elise Simonet. The band also proposes to invite a guest on each concert, integrating it to the scenic device.
Co-production : Freddy Morezon, le Lieu Unique (Nantes, France), La Soufflerie scène conventionnée de Rezé (Rezé, France), “Aujourd’hui Musiques” festival by l’Archipel (Perpignan, France), Sybille Musique and Aquaserge. In partnership with Chez Lily, les arts à l’œuvre (Germ-Louron, France). With the support of the DRAC Occitanie, the Région Occitanie, the Adami, the SPEDIDAM, the FCM and the CNV.
