Octandre and éclats renew their collaboration this season around acousmatic music for young people, with a project around the music of François Bayle, honored guest of Octandre for the season.

Bayle’s musical world and an approach of acousmatic sounds with the “musical floor” will be presented in school throughout the year, to prepare for the loudspeaker orchestra concert at the dawn of spring in éclats.

Birds’ Dreams and spinning tops in the skies, in these imaginary realms where small invisible animals and wide sonorous clouds will visit you and take you on a trip.
