AN EXPERIENCE... UNEXPECTED
At last, we are happy that this vast enterprise is finally released. Basically, it was a challenge: ask to 13 composers around the world to create a piece for Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles - directed by Jean-Paul Dessy (but founded by Henri Pousseur in 1962). From Europe, USA or Japan, try to explore the compositional frame of today's creators, and not only in the well-known 'contemporary scene' but to push further the boundary and discover the unexpected result of some of the greatest names of today's electronic world.

ART ZOYD & ENSEMBLE MUSIQUES NOUVELLES
For the realisation of this big project, many forces were necessary : two regions between two countries - Belgium and France - two ensembles - Musiques Nouvelles (20 musicians) and Art Zoyd (6 musicians) and their high-tech studios - and two years of work. The result is contained in a 3 CD box - 172 minutes of music - and a 40 pages booklet explaining it all.

NEW COMPOSITIONS AND UNPUBLISHED WORK
Opus #1 by RYOJI IKEDA is the first piece that he wrote for non-electronic instruments - and paradoxically, one of his most accomplished work. ATAU TANAKA's composition is for chamber orchestra, theremin and infrared! HORATIO RADULESCU, the founder of the Spectral technique of composition is, for sure, one of the greatest composers alive, this is his last Opus (#64). DAVID SHEA is well-known by his many collaborations with Sub Rosa and Tzadik. JEAN-LUC FAFCHAMPS has just published his second complete cd on Sub Rosa a few months ago. JEAN-PAUL DESSY questions the mermaids' voices and KASPER T. TOEPLITZ organizes a Glenn Branca revival. JEROME COMBIER tries to impulse black light in music. GIOVANNI SOLLIMA mixes baroque chamber orchestra and techno rhythm. GERARD HOURBETTE continues Art Zoyd's expressionist legend. JEAN-CHRISTOPHE FELDHANDLER organizes a space in constant change, at the threshold of its widening. FAUSTO ROMITELLI opposes string quartet and a single mixer (another fragment of his genious, waiting for An index of Metal...). GUALTIERO DAZZI creates a tragic cinematographic space...

13 compositions, 13 unpublished works and 13 ways to combine electronic music and classical instruments.
