Electro-Acoustic Music / Performance

“More than a band of gifted musicians, Cabaret Contemporain is a fusion of pop music experimental soundscapes, techno, minimalist rock, and improvised jazz.” – Le Parisien

Cabaret Contemporain is an ensemble of five musicians in search of sonic love. Together they create an explosive performance that crosses all genres with a new approach to the world of music.

In Transistor, acoustic instruments are amplified through an electronic filter and every musician develops a highly personal technique to create sounds generally produced by electronic instruments. The symphonic orchestration produces brilliant new sonic entities.

Transistor is a work of hypnosis and power, colours and dance, and is a mix of improvised music falling between techno-minimal and contemporary music. It bears similarities to Four Tet, Voices From The Lake, Brandt Bauer Frick, James Holden and Daphni/Caribou. Cabaret Contemporain has signed on electro/experimental label M=Minimal in Berlin.
