Totem-Cairn is an international co-production between Ensemble Cairn (FR) and Productions Totem Contemporain. The project will materialize in four commissions of works offered to composers Émilie Girard-Charest (CA), Jesper Nordin (SE), Michael Edwards (UK), Samuel Sighicelli (FR). Three of the performers will be from Ensemble Cairn (clarinet, electric guitar, percussion) and three others from PTC (two Babel tables and a Siren organ). The four works will be premiered on March 23 in Lyon as part of the Biennale des musiques exploratoires, a festival organized by the GRAME.
