Music for You – Unlikely Instruments
The last four editions of the Music for You mini-concerts, which have been taking place since 2013, have all dealt with specific themes related to the programme: Erudite Music, Jazz, World Music and Pop Rock.
For the 2016/2017 season, we propose a somewhat different kind of programme: Unlikely Instruments, in which musicians from various parts of the world share their inventions in the multidisciplinary universe of experimental and electronic music, building new instruments with a powerful visual component and sound sculptures.
Once a month, we invite musicians to play for 30 minutes, and, at the end of their performance, to answer questions put to them by a curious public. The concert offers a moment of intimacy based on the proximity of the audience to the performance, in which the musicians offer their knowledge and experience of music to children and adults alike, in order to satisfy all of their curiosity.

Hanna Hartman is a Swedish composer, sound artist and performer who lives in Berlin. She has developed her own very particular language in the composition of musical pieces built exclusively on authentic sounds, since she concentrates her attention on the inner qualities of the objects we use in our everyday life. She presents a highly peculiar and extraordinary world, in which she reveals the links between sounds originating from very different sources through constructions that are marked by a most impressive delicacy, transparency and balance. Hartman composes for radio, for sound sculptures, and recently for instrumentalists playing either solo or in an ensemble. From 2007 to 2008, she was the resident composer at the Swedish National Radio and has already received numerous awards at the European level.
