Résidents light2

Claire Marchal and Lieve De Sadeleer are two explorers of the sound of the flute - or rather flutes in the plural! They indeed offer us a musical journey with modern, baroque, traditional flutes... all augmented with the Sampo. The Sampo is a digital extension that allows you to transform the sound of an acoustic instrument in real time, thus adding a new sound dimension to it.

The program that the two performers have designed for the Claviers en Pays d'Auch, l'été festival promises to be as rich as the instrumentarium, ranging from early music to contemporary music and improvisation.
