Jazz à Luz 2016: 'Le 7ème continent', talking trash

... "an artificial world, in the midst of the ocean, accidentally created by men" ... 

Reports and images of floating garbage in the ocean, named the "seventh continent” or “the Great Pacific garbage patch" called my attention, made me think and at the same time encouraged me to put this absurd reality into music. 

The goal of this musical project is to make this 'seventh continent' sing, hiss, whirr, buzz and scream. Creating a wall of sound and rhythm, from where colors, patterns, melodies, and improvisations arise. 

The sextet, which includes musicians from France, Germany, Austria, Spain and Belgium, consists of two identical instrumented trios or three identical duos, with the exception of the double bass, which has the sub-contrabass flute as it's pendant."
