Acoustic homages to Bizet, Mano Solo, Chopin, Alain Bashung and Françis Poulenc
A spectacular event took place last Sunday in Père Lachaise. A first of its kind music project was organized by Les Sons Tissés (woven sounds), an association of master’s degree students in music studies at the Sorbonne.
For their end-of-year project, members performed acoustic homages to five musicians, ranging from classical music to contemporary French rock.
Created in April 2015, the association’s objective is to promote and highlight the curriculum, to develop a professional network, in particular through collaborations and social events, and to organize music-based projects.
I feel extremely fortunate to have been there because I learned about this event less than 24 hours beforehand. Thank you Google alerts!
Due to the exceptional nature of this event, I filmed each performance (my finger included). These are my first videos ever. Please be kind in your comments.
The association plans to renew the experience, so stay tuned.
