Three works for orchestra, three ways of reconfiguring this classical formation, using electronics or using a new spatial structure. Misato Mochizuki, at the confluence of Western and Japanese cultures, imagines a score where the machinery of the Orchids software generates an artificial nature: a virtual electronic bird bursts into the fabric of the orchestra. For Marco Stroppa, the soloist of Come play with me is the electronics embodied by a totem of loudspeakers. In this lively concerto, the movements follow one another right up to an unexpected cadenza by the lone electronic protagonist. With Ring for large spatialized orchestra, the first part of the Köln trilogy, Philippe Manoury shatters orchestral hierarchies with the arrangement of sound groups and the spatialization of trajectories. A scenography disrupting the established codes of the orchestra and the concert.
