Aton’&Armide: wooden jubilee

© Virginie Schreyen

Aton’&Armide has been around for 5 years now: a wooden jubilee asks for our wooden instruments in a superb wooden hall!

What started as a duo focussing on contemporary music soon grew into a collective. After many creations, collaborations and musical theatre we joined forces again as a duo for our first CD-recording (Antarctica/Penguin).
During the last 3 days we’ve recorded Jean-Luc Fafchamps’ ‘Trois chants pour mieux voir’ for cello and prepared piano, and Daan Janssens’ ‘(…nada)’ for cello, piano and electronics in the simply incredible Studio 1 at Flagey, Brussels.
In August we’ll be heading for Brive-la-Gaillarde (F) to record Claude Debussy’s ‘Sonate pour violoncelle’ with a gut-stringed cello, on the maestro’s very own Blüthner.

“I love music passionately. And because I love it I try to free it from barren traditions that stifle it.” (C. Debussy)
