Series bringing together all Onceim collective creations
The concerts that have come out of collective Onceim work sessions and residences have been brought together in a collection entitled Laminaire, which, while of great complexity and quality of writing, retains the force and intensity specific to improvisation. We thus speak of laminar flow, which in physical terms concerns the process whereby layers of fluid slide on top of each other. The sound layers form a whole and are visible simultaneously.
Although the music is played in real time and is improvised, the free collective creations tend towards a form of writing. From orchestral polyphonic writing to the development of various types of matter and texture, the Onceim improvisers know how to breathe life into the different horizons offered in the form of a collective imagination in perpetual mutation. Each musician in their individuality, and by listening to each of the others, puts themselves at the service of the collective, together producing this group work so dear to Onceim.
