Fishbach

It had been a while since we’d witnessed so astounding a take off for an artist: Fishbach, age 25, has her name on everyone’s lips, fascinating and troubling all who come across her. Revealed in France only just a year ago, the young singer’s voice is one of surprise and sensuality which instantly sets itself apart from the norm.

Fishbach is from Charleville-Mézières (a small town in East of France, home of poète noir Arthur Rimbaud) and her voice goes from a soft and almost gentle whisper to a rugged and loud chant, deep and incantatory.

Frànçois and the Atlas Mountains

In the time since 2014’s Piano Ombre, Frànçois Marry rediscovered his adolescent passion for the power of grunge. This energy he “lost on the way”, in his own words, resurfaced on two occasions. A collaboration with Hedi Slimane, who allowed him to immerse himself in the punk and grunge scene of L.A. - with bands like Wand and Sunflower Bean in particular - revived his passion for this electricity.

The concert includes Chin’s Cantatrix Sopranica, a playful exploration of the act of singing for two sopranos, countertenor, and ensemble featuring singer Carla Huhtanen, and “Advice From a Caterpillar,” an excerpt from her dazzling opera Alice in Wonderland.
