Ensembles in Residence

Proxima Centauri

Proxima Centauri is a music ensemble that rewrites the codes of chamber music namely by integrating electro-acoustic as a full-fledged member of the formation. For over twenty years, Proxima Centauri has been cooperating with many artists, other musicians, interpreters or improvisers as well as dancers or visual artists. The ensemble thus has a multidisciplinary artistic approach combining musical creation and visual arts.

Under the artistic direction of Marie-Bernadette Charrier, the ensemble follows an active commissioning policy and creates many works by composers of this century, alternating with the interpretation of the great masters of the 20th century.

Proxima Centauri invests all the dimensions of creation, from research in contemporary instrument-making down to the transmission of know-how to young interpreters. The ensemble was created and resides in Bordeaux but its scope of action goes beyond the Nouvelle-Aquitaine and the French border. Of international renown, the ensemble is invited to many festivals and tours regularly in Europe, America, Asia and Oceania.
