Sylvain Chauveau /FR pres. Ensemble 0 + Andert Tysma /NL
19:00, Gabriel Loci
temporarily not available


French ambient composer Sylvain Chauveau, one of the most important contemporary representatives of "silent music”, is coming to Spectaculare festival with his project ensemble 0. In this ensemble, represented by musicians from all over the world, he explores all the forms of minimalism played on acoustic instruments. A special evening in the eclectic space of the Garden of Eden at Gabriel Loci will also feature Dutch composer and producer Andert Tysma, who is about to invite ambient listeners to an introspective musical experience complemented by site-specific visuals.

Ground zero for ensemble 0 was 2004, when a quartet of friends led by Sylvain Chauveaum decided to form an ensemble dedicated to contemporary acoustic music. It was also then that the idea of a fluid and geometrically unchanging line-up was born; the original members were from France, Catalonia and Belgium, but in the years that followed Ensemble 0 has grown to include dozens of friendly musicians from all over the world. They have released ten albums so far on labels such as Flau and Crammed Disc. „It's music that is both instantly appealing and permanently elusive,“ The Wire magazine wrote of their recordings.

The first Prague concert of ensemble 0 will be accompanied by the Dutch composer and producer Andert Tysma, who is based alternately in Berlin and Amsterdam. He studied jazz, but has no problem mixing best practices and traditional instruments with contemporary electronics. His music is characterized by a strong sense of melody and a desire to create an immersive and introspective listening experience. His debut album, Children Of Trinoom, was released by UK label Apollo in autumn 2022 and features Tysma capturing his childhood memories in an abstract, neo-classical style.

This concert is supported by Liveurope. The first EU-wide initiative to support concert clubs in their efforts to host concerts by emerging European artists. Liveurope is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
