Cactus Music

Almost every story about minimal or repetitive music starts with the triumvirate Steve Reich, Philip Glass and Terry Riley. Each in their own way, paved the way for one of the most exciting and thriving movements in music of the 20th and 21st centuries. Minimal music has been an inspiration for Eric Sleichim since the 1980s. Today, BL!NDMAN's demarche towards the renewal of early music finds more than ever a connection with Reich, Glass and Riley whose works draw inspiration from the oldest polyphonic techniques.In this programme, BL!NDMAN offers a sampling of the exceptional timbres generated by his unique line-up: with his saxophone, string and percussion quartet, piano, electric guitar, tubax and electronics, BL!NDMAN conjures up a 21st-century orchestral sound. The solo works combine the virtuosity of the soloists with the use of electronic doubling, while in the tutti works, the instrumentation and powerful consonance of the full BL!NDMAN ensemble provide the very diverse perspectives that give full credit to these extraordinary compositions.The choice of relatively well-known and, above all, lesser-known works by the three icons of repetitive music gives raison d'être to a triple album that will be released on April 14th 2023.
