LOVEMUSIC + CHRISTOPHE IMBS « ELEKTRISH »

As I floated down impassive Rivers,
I felt myself no longer pulled by ropes
— Arthur Rimbaud

lovemusic and the pianist Christophe Imbs (electrified for the occasion!), artists from different musical backgrounds, join forces for the first time for this sound research project. On top of the sound of a Fender Rhodes, pushed to it’s limits with effects, long hypnotic and melodic lines are constructed by flutes and clarinets. Electro / jazz influences mix seemlessly with the acoustic sounds of the two founding musicians of lovemusic, always eager to discover the interpretative possibilities of their instruments and to explore new creative collaborations by pushing the boundaries between musical genres.

This project was the premiere of a new composition by Christophe Imbs, written specially for the occasion and performed within the second edition of the festival Musiques Éclatées on a boat sailing down the river Ill in Strasbourg the 30th of March 2019.
