Visuel parvis nuit 117022 April 2022 at 19h, Paris

In the framework of the Baroque nocturnals, the Arts et Métiers Museum proposes the program Early music/Present music, organized under the coordination of Jean-Christophe Revel.

Throughout history, humans have been constantly inventing and pushing the imposed limits in the field of musical creation. From the invention of polyphony imagined inside the cathedrals to the arrival of new technologies, the musician of the 21st century finds themself confronted to immense fields of practice and reflection that open to them and that they can explore at will.

The program Early music/present music honours the great musical inventions of the past and of our time around the Sampo (magical box in Finnish) invented by Alexander Mihalic and the Musinfo team, and invites us to a journey at the heart of played music and music invented through the techniques of real-time treatment, that we name live-electronic in our contemporary world. An incentive to slumber and to the wildest dreams.
