Like all the assemblies of musicians put forward by The Transatlantic Bridge, this formation is a story of merging forces, a story born of desire and first encounters. Thus, Frédéric Bargeon-Briet and Guillaume Orti have spent much time together in the Hask collective in the 90s. With Nimbus, Briet’s polyvalent ensemble, the double bass player has made sure to include the saxophonist/flute player Magic Malik (who has also collaborated with Orti). Briet, during a trip to the US in 2012, met Jeb Bishop in Chicago, with whom he later collaborated in the ensemble Bonadventure Pencroff. Khari B., son of the saxophone and clarinet player Mwata Bowden, was recently elected chairman of the AACM. All this makes Briet say: “In this orchestra, the trajectories of each musician are like rays of light converging to the focal point of a magnifying lens. After the first concert at Sons d’hiver, once we have exchanged the first notes, texts, and words, we will have gone through the lens to discover and travel a sublimed dimension different from the one we are familiar with. We will be on both sides of the looking glass, observing and being observed.”
