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. Such as Itération des Ondes, that combines jazz, traditional and experimental music in a very vivid way, using repetitive musical items and sounds waves that evoke trance and jubilation. It gathers young talented musicians who need a first professional step.


Antonin Pauquet

Biography: After arriving in Paris in 2016, Antonin Pauquet obtained his DNSPM in jazz and improvised music at the Pôle SUp'93, having trained for three years with inspiring musicians such as Vincent Ségal, Julien Loureau, Magik Malik. At the same time, he succeeded in entering the same establishment in classical double bass.

Alternately studio musician, sideman and project leader, he moves fluidly from one role to another, from one aesthetic to another.

Passionate about transmission in various forms, he also leads a career as a young pedagogue, at the Clichy Conservatory, as well as within the DEMOS orchestra of the Paris Philharmonic.

His project Itération des Ondes is a challenging new repertory at the confluence of jazz, traditional and experimental music. A travel between aesthetics borders focused on repetitive items, heady melodies that evoke dance, trance and fantasy.

With this atypical instrumental formation, the sounds are multifaceted, organic.
