Alliance Française de Trivandrum proudly presents ELECTRIC SUITES: Jazz violin by Guillaume Blanc on 8 June, 6.30pm at Vyloppilly Samskrithi Bhavan.
Guillaume Blanc strives to achieve the distinctive signature sound of modern times: Electronic music, the language of sound and rhythm boxes and synthesizers via his classical instruments (violin, viola). Playing in interaction with machines, learning to master their language, that is the challenge of Electric Suites. The sounds of traditional instruments closely intertwined with those of the electronic music.
Thus Electric Suites is situated between tradition and innovation, weaving a fundamental link between what appears opposite the ancient and the present, the individual and the collective, the local and the universal.
Folklore of Eastern Europe, Jazz, Classical music, Beat music, traditional and ancient music, Electric Suites was inspired by this diversity in order to develop a new aesthetic, highlighting the profound aspirations of the creator and of the artist: to provide an artistic language that would be relevant to its time, while preserving a link to its past and origins. Revitalised with each live concert, Electric Suites takes its routes deep in the past and traditions of music, in order to better reinvent, whilst making the listener’s body vibrate… at the same time as the musician’s one does!
