TEASER

L'Invitation

PEOPLE OF EVERY PLANET, REJOICE…

Gong master builder

Entity in continuous metamorphosis within the intra- and extra-planetary chaos of its stellar system, GONG, with its multiple incarnations, has a red thread that never failed: its music, beautiful, dangerous and extraordinary. The successful new album with its provocative title Rejoice! I'm Dead! testifies it, eclectic verve from the irresponsible legatees of the Camembert.

POWER + EMOTION = MELODY * FEELING

In concert, the band focuses on what gives strength, power and emotion to its songs: melody and feeling. IO EARTH, a master in the art of fusion of styles (Progressive, Ambient, Jazz, Dance, Celtic, Folk, Contemporary, Metal ...), plays live with this innate sense of efficiency and pleasure which puts at ease, relaxes and shares out.

RADICAL MUSIC OF GASCONY BURSTS ON STAGE

From traditional sound roots, ARTÚS musicians create an audacious and heroic work. Of a singular and topical vitality, this "Radical music of Gascony" really bursts on stage, in a wild contact, with people, blood and sweat - no tears.

SAY HOLLAND TO A PROG ROCK FAN

Say Holland to a quidam, he will answer you Gouda, tulips, and windmills; say Holland to a Prog Rock fan, he will answer FOCUS. Led by Thijs van Leer, tireless when it comes to making the flute sing or moan the Hammond, the band can count on the rhythmic skill of its drummer from (almost) the beginning, Pierre van der Linden.

PSYCHEDELIC SOUND SAMPLING, GARAGE PERFORMANCE

Hammond and sitar enrich the sound sampling of THE NARCOTIC DAFFODILS: Psychedelic in its gestation, Alternative or even Garage in its performance, communicative by essence, this group is made for the stage.

TRANSCENDING FRIPPERTRONICS

Pioneer of Electronic Music, he is to France what Tangerine Dream is to Germany. He is also one of the few guitarists supporting the comparison with Robert Fripp - of which he transcends the technique Frippertronics. In constant activity, RICHARD PINHAS plays on all continents - and in Soignies with the excellent drummer Arthur Narcy.

BEYOND THE CONTEMPORARY HYBRID BOUNDARIES

The reference to Frank Zappa is obvious, but does not mean everything. THE WRONG OBJECT pushes the contemporary hybrid boundaries of Progressive Rock and Jazz, valuing an aesthetic that draws from woven and woven inspirations with as much skill as vehemence.

I WANT TO GIVE VOICE TO THE WEAK

It is one of those projects that move those that come by. Who can say as such: "I want to give voice to the weak […], the inadequate, the rejected of society, the desperate lovers"?  THE GREEN VIOLONIST.

RHÂÂ PROGLY

As a tribute to Marcel Gotlib, seminal author who raised comics out the infantile world, LUC DESROUSSEAUX, aka Arkanius, helped by Newton’s ladybird will make the link with the exhibition Progressive Rock and comics.

ELECTRO ROCK 70

With ERIC DESHAYES (Le Mot et le Reste), historian of the music of the 20th century, we will be introduced to the first steps of electronics in Rock, in France and Germany during the '70s - Richard Pinhas, was, of course, among those users of electronic boxes and first synthesizers.

LES SONORITÉS DU ROCK PROGRESSIF

ROMAIN RIOBOO sampled for us some of Progressive Rock’s sonic specificities. He will make us hear this enlargement of the sound palette, stemmed from the search of new ways of expressing emotions.

POURQUOI JE N’AIME PAS LE ROCK PROGRESSIF

A provocateur whose voice was heard by everyone, John Peel of French-speaking Belgian Radio-Television, radio host, lover of comics and fantasy films, JACQUES DE PIERPONT, aka Pompon, will talk about something that should make us react.
