A health pass is not required for this concert.

An ever-creative explorer in the electro genre, Arandel offers these inventive, playful and touching renditions of the Bach repertoire—all in fine company.

1/ Arandel InBach

In ten years, with five inspired albums and remixes for Son Lux, Yael Naim and Tahiti 80, Arandel has handily interwoven electronica, pop and contemporary music—like a French cousin of the English label Warp. Always up for a daring new challenge, Arandel has now turned to baroque music and Bach. Born from a Philharmonie de Paris - Musée de la musique proposal, InBach replays 18th-century melodies with an uncommon method: first recorded on museum instruments, the scores then pass through the studio filter, are cut, spliced and then replayed on the synthesiser. Here, bass viol and hurdy-gurdy converse with keyboard glockenspiel ondioline and other electronic conjurations. Co-produced by the InFiné label and the Philharmonie de Paris, InBach will be interpreted on stage with musicians Flore (electronics), Ornette (keys) and illustrious guests.


2/ Christian Löffler, Parallels: Shellac Reworks

For more than ten years, German musician, producer and DJ Christian Löffler has been working his magic in the mellow and melodious electronica vein, with its thousand and one nuances. His pieces, primarily instrumental, are finely wrought, soothing and precise. They have that rare quality of being music you can dance to alone, and getting even the most reluctant dancers moving to the groove. It is, one could say, house music for at home, which he masterfully crafts around melodies from the classical repertoire, by composers such as Chopin, Bach, Beethoven and Smetana. On paper, it sounds risky, but the album, from the prestigious label Deutsche Grammophon, pulls this feat off beautifully. Parallels: Shellac Reworks plays with the textures, instruments, electronics, sound processing and intricate rhythms, sculpting accomplished pieces that stand on their own.
