Festival Description

The Archipel festival supports the organic and transformative development of music by offering a genuine exploration of today’s musical forms by allowing them to meet and be confronted with each other and by promoting a sense of discovery and curiosity for the largest possible audience. The festival is curated along four main lines—written music (which comprises creations and new interpretations of works from the contemporary music repertoire), and electroacousic music, improvisation and sound art.

Archipel supports musical creation by commissioning improvisational musicians, sound artists and composers be they Swiss, foreign, beginners or known; by setting up residences for artists in Geneva; by achieving original and otherwise unworkable projects with various cultural collaborators and by developing new approaches to the notion of concert.

Festival Dates March 23 - April 1, 2012
