ÓMUN brings together four musicians from the European contemporary jazz and improvised music scenes: Pascal Charrier (guitar), Julien Tamisier (keyboards, electronics), Philippe Lemoine (tenor saxophone) and Teun Verbruggen (drumkit, electronics).
The quartet’s sound is a combination of timbres and resonances. Every kind of approach is taken in a mixture of acoustic, electric, uncommon instrumental sounds as well as electronic and electroacoustic treatment of various sound sources. Dramatic generation of material and soundscapes disrupt bearings and invent a instantaneous poetry through processing, deconstruction and distortion. The listener navigates through a sea of reminiscences, guided by fragments of melodies like the residues of a collective memory.
In this new repertory, TRIBUTE TO THE FALL, the music places sound matter at the centre of the drama, questioning notions of permanence (emotions, bodies, ideas) and time (perpetual movement, spirals, abysses).
The traditional stage/audience layout is also questioned with the creation of a circular common ground which gives both performers and audience the possibility to move around, thus changing their visual and auditive perception.
This project is also pushed forward in the quintet version of the show called ÓMUN-IMAGE, in which the 4 musicians are joined with the videomaker Cyril Meroni.
