After Infinity III - a tribute to Ethnic Heritage Ensemble (November 5, 2006)

After Infinity Sessions Go on :
Read text of After Infinity 1 to learn more about the origin of this project.
After Infinity 1

After Infinity 2 was in mars 2006. Great session ! But many titles used sampled stuff - that we don't have the clearance of...

Here's now After Infinity III... deeper in the improvisation, wider in direction... and definitively more contemporary... It was in november the 5th, 2006.

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 !

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...
