Project summary

Itération des Ondes (Wave iteration) is part of the programme Les Chantiers, dedicated to the promotion of emerging artists. The festival Détours de Babel organises a call for musical projects, which gives young artist opportunities to complete their first creative projects in a professional setting. Following a selection process by a jury of professionals, several projects are supported and presented to the public during the festival. They are very diverse, some of them present strong potential for a development on a European level.
