A multimedia concert featuring the accordion, Bal Passé looks back at popular events with a new creation. The ball opens with a recent work for accordion and electronics by the Spanish composer Carlos de Castellarnau who has made the ogre-like power of the instrument growl. Then, Ça tourne ça bloque by Ondřej Adámek, carries us to a round in the Land of the Rising Sun, combining sampled French-Japanese vocal loops with acoustic games. The evening switches over to a synesthetic afterparty with Tablado, a creation by the Franco-Brazilian composer Januibe Tejera. The nine musicians TM+ wander, appear, and disappear at the discretion of the lights and video projections by Claudio Cavallari.
