US Tour: Ensemble Court-circuit

"Created by a composer for composers", Court-circuit from the outset was a place of experimentation, an art project promoting intense risk-taking in a spirit of total freedom. A strong commitment to contemporary music is the real cement of the ensemble. Court-circuit owes its nervous, rhythmic, incisive identity, as well as its banner-like name, to the musicians and their leader Jean Deroyer, who animate it with determination and virtuosity. A sought-after partner for composers, the ensemble cheerfully plays its role of agitator in the international contemporary scene.

Court-circuit's tour in the U.S. is both the opportunity to integrate American and French composers in the same concerts and to work with young university student composers. It is also an opportunity to collaborate with the American ensemble Ecce, conducted by the composer John Aylward, artistic director of the Etchings Summer Academy, in South-West France.
