As part of SuperMusique’s 40th anniversary, we have commissioned Jean Derome to compose a new work: please support us

I am contributing to the participatory fundraising campaign on the crowdfunding platform La Ruche.

SuperMusique’s 40th anniversary: the outstanding new music composer Jean Derome has been commissioned a new work for the Ensemble SuperMusique. The piece will be premiered as part of the concert Le fleuve on 8 April, 2021 at Le Vivier, Carrefour des musiques nouvelles, Amphithéâtre du Gesù.

When Jean Derome composes for improvisers, he seeks to create mobile forms open to the unexpected, forms that allow surprise and the emergence of new figures to pop up. That is to say that he creates game structures that generate a constantly moving and always stimulating composition! Derome has composed in the past pieces inspired by electricity, the game of sudoku, and even a canoe camping expedition.

Before getting down to actually write music, Jean wishes to individually spend time with each member of the Ensemble SuperMusique in order to explore their own peculiarities as musicians and feel their own particular “vibe”. This will allow the composer to find the right take and topic before scoring the piece.

Please help us to enhance the composer fee that SuperMusique has offered to Jean Derome making it possible for him to spend precious time working and researching with all members of the ensemble.

Many thanks in advance!
