Music for all sensibilities
“La Jungle – Raw Collaborations” and “Les voix des Terres Rouges
In May and June, all kinds of music will be in the spotlight on both sides of the Franco-Luxembourg border, through artist residencies and concerts.
La Jungle – Collaborations brutes
Project supported by the Community of Communes Pays Haut Val d’Alzette
As a gradual cultural recovery takes shape, the FrancoFolies in Esch-Alzette, the Belgian trance-noise duo La Jungle and the Institut Médico Éducatif in Aumetz are already planning the festival season that will follow. If tours and concert proposals are once again multiplying, why not consider a proposal outside the box, which would give space on stage to some teenagers ready to experiment?
Accompanied by the Parisian collective Brut Pop – musical pedagogy and inclusion, the young people of the Institute and the group La Jungle will meet to create a common sound piece, an attempt at collaboration that will be presented on stage at the FrancoFolies 2022. In the meantime, they spend several periods in residence together in Luxembourg. There, they will compose, in a professional setting, one or more tracks that will be part of the future concert of La Jungle in Esch-Alzette.
Rémy & Mathieu borrow the traditional codes of noise, reappropriate bits of it and loop the whole thing to compulsively repeat sequences always conceived live. A hypnotic and voluntarily haunting spontaneity, bordering on the interminable, which will occasionally grant itself some brief oriental doom impulses or an epic metal fork in the middle of a kraut-rock saga. If La Jungle is often defined as a math-rock duo, its two noisers prefer to talk about wild and brazenly danceable techno with blasting guitars, frenetic drums and Casio for kids.

Les voix des Terres Rouges
The Orchestre national de Metz wanted to present a participatory choral project with two historical entities of the cross-border choral landscape: INECC Mission Voix Lorraine and INECC Luxembourg. This project is part of a collective amateur practice and not a collective practice ‘in amateur’ and it is with this axis that we wished to revive the history of choral singing in order to present a choir and orchestra creation. To do this, we thought of commissioning a composer so that the creation could be adopted collectively, a creation that would be based on the participants, the region, its history, its cultural, social, historical and geographical heritage.
The objective is to invite amateur choirs from the region – of all levels, adults and children – to join the Orchestre national de Metz in performing a new work inspired by the region’s industrial past (notably through the use of different sound materials) and the diversity of its cultures today.
For this purpose, we commissioned a composer so that the creation could be adopted collectively, a creation that starts from the participants, the region, its history, its cultural, social, historical and geographical heritage. We called on the Luxembourg composer Catherine Kontz, who knows the region well, likes to work with the voice and has an international reputation.
This participatory project will bring together amateur choirs (children and adults) to work throughout the year 2021/22, leading to concerts in June and July 2022.
