After Infinity 1 - a tribute to Ethnic Heritage Ensemble (Nov 27, 2005)

A wish:
Six month after the Infinity Orchestra in Bordeaux, France, with the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble (Kahil El Zabar, Joseph Bowie, Ernest Dawkins - an outstanding free jazz trio from Chicago), just one year after their workshops opened to musicians of any level, I wanted to bring together those i met there and got on well with... to play some music altogether again ! A few other friends and relations came to join the project and here are 14 good fellows who could come that day...

Inspiration :
The main idea is directly inspired by what Kahil El Zabar did in the workshops : as a performer, composer, arranger and conductor, he improvised with the orchestra as if it was his instrument... From nowhere, he created impressive and great moments of music...

The After Infinity recording session :

- Each musician of the orchestra will conduct his piece.
- He/she comes with a musical idea (any genre).

The After Infinity rule is 5 mn / 5 mn :

The improvising conductor has :
- 5 minutes to present & share his/her musical wills.
- And then, 5 minutes to conduct to make the tune alive.

The one and only performance is directly printed !
