The INSUB META ORCHETRA present here its third « Archive », recorded in the amazing acoustic of the Swiss Radio studio in Genva during the summer 2014. Four pieces, two relatively short and one very long, each of them placing the accent on a particlular and reduced aspect, silences, uniformity, durations, unisson and contrast. This « Archive#3″ sees also the return of the orchestra to structured pieces after a couple of years focused on improvisation. 29 musicians, with a large variety of instruements, winds, strings, electronics, percussions, an harmonium, and a good amount of uncategorized objects, build delicat textures, appearing and returning to the silence, force the listening to extreme zones, with a radical position on durations and minimal variations.
