People in the machine
Electronic, acoustic instruments and voices
2017 Creation - 6th KBA collective
"Kreiz Breizh Akademi # 6 is based on electronic music.
Conducted by Erik Marchand, the eleven musicians of "Pobl 'B'ar Machin[e]" tinker with sounds and voices, between turbo folk, oriental pop, trip hop or dañs-trañs"
The sixth collective coming from Kreiz Breizh Akademi
offers a musical exploration on the borders
of acoustic and electronic.
An hybrid sound evoking a living machine, mixing breton singing tradition and world modern sounds and instruments.
Working on reworked tone and electronic transe music, musical themes from south bretagne balance between freshness, poetry and electronic spirit.
Specific acoustic instruments, sounds and voices join the keyboard's, pads' and hurdy gurdy's tones.
Musical colors of KBA's collective, due to their choice to preserve « blue notes » from popular breton songs,
find here an echo in oriental and balkanic actual music.
