Electro Symphonic Project at the Bordeaux Opera!

Avec Laurent Couson

Souvenez-vous…Le 20 juin 2017 vous aviez découvert en avant première des extraits de « The Modern Symphonic Album » du compositeur Laurent Couson lors de l’exposition ITINÉRANCE Place Saint Thomas d’Aquin à Paris. A cette occasion vous aviez été plusieurs centaine à être envoûtés par cette musique d’un genre nouveau.

Many of you regularly ask us when and where you will be able to listen to the orchestral version of the pieces... It is now a wish that can come true because Laurent Couson, composer and conductor, brings to the stage of the Auditorium of the National Opera of Bordeaux, this transversal and offbeat experience. Based on the 15 tracks of his album "The Modern Symphonic Album" released in September 2017 by Universal Production Music, Laurent Couson brings together on stage the Bordeaux Aquitaine National Orchestra, the DJs Tom Fire and Charles Schillings, and the bassist Benoit Lugué. His musical compositions are set to electronic rhythms and sounds, and he has created a 3D mapping scenography and lighting.

Laurent Couson thus expresses his desire to meet classical groups, accompanied by DJs and their turntables; he wishes to bring a new public, not used to places identified as "classical music", to new forms inviting symphonic music and electronic music.

Remember ... On June 20th, 2017 you had previewed some pieces of " The Modern Symphonic Album " by the composer Laurent Couson during the exhibition ITINERANCE Place Saint Thomas Aquin in Paris. On this occasion you have been several hundred to be spellbound by this music of a new genre.
