    Frame by Frame

    The ONJ joins forces with the three brilliant female composers Airelle Besson, Sylvaine Hélary and sarah Murcia for a unique dive into 1970’s progressive rock. From Pink Floyd to Genesis, to King Crimson and Henry Cow, the orchestra will pay tribute to the mythical bands whose works have left a deep imprint on several generations.

    Ex Machina

    Conceived by the composer and saxophonist Steve Lehman from New York with Frédéric Maurin, in close collaboration with IRCAM, Ex Machina explores brand-new directions in music: for the first time, this programme develops the possibilities of real-time interaction between instrumentalists and machines at the heart of a jazz orchestra.

    Dancing in Your Head(s)

    Dancing in Your Head(s) celebrates the music of the American saxophonist Ornette Coleman and artists in his galaxy – from Julius Hemphill to Eric Dolphy via Tim Berne – through an electric and explosive new reading orchestrated by Fred Pallem. A tribute to a major jazz figure that leans strongly towards groove, fun and transe!

    Rituels

    This original material cowritten by Frédéric Maurin with Ellinoa, Sylvaine Hélary, Leïla Martial and Grégoire Letouvet extend this invitation to follow a poetic musical path around the notion of day-to-day rituals. Carried by thirteen instrumentalists and four voices, the seven pieces in this programme evoke Time as a perpetual return.

    Dracula

    As the first show in ONJ history aimed at a young audience, Dracula takes its inspiration from the most famous vampire legend of all, becoming a hybrid creation that brings together two actresses and nine musicians. Moving between a tale, opera and musical theatre, the Orchestra unveils a new story where we put our nightmares aside while the music carries us away.
