14 glasbenikov iz Kanade raziskuje nova ozemlja, ki jih ponuja orkestralna živa glasba, osvobojena dirigentske linearnosti.
14 musicians from Canada are exploring a new territory offered by orchestral live music, free of conductor’s linearity.
Le GGRIL is a large improvisers ensemble coming from Rimouski, a small Eastern Quebec town. Its strange combination of instruments produces a unique sonic palette consisting of electric and acoustic instruments, for a playful experience in new territories.
The show. For the performance of its SOMMES tour, the GGRIL has chosen an amalgam of pieces, concepts and improvisations explored by the ensemble over the past few years.
The 14 musicians will present compositions from the album SOMMES (2021), as well as games, directed improvisations, and pieces composed by members of the group. Never identical, the performances of the GGRIL are intended as a journey where the listener can immerse themselves in the universe of the GGRIL through an authentic and unexpected experience from show to show.
