Thank you very much for all the positive feedback to our new programme quel monstre voy-je là? – early and contemporary music about transience, which we performed together with sylvain chauveau (www.sylvainchauveau.com) in november 2017. The concerts in the german-speaking part of switzerland and in romainmôtier were wonderful – thanks to everyone who came!
The new, sixth cd is published! It is called echoes of harmony - early music reworked. New recordings of chant 1450 encounter the sound spaces, drones and remixes of french ambient artist sylvain chauveau (www.sylvainchauveau.com). The cd was published in october 2017 by the bruxelles record label subrosa (www.subrosa.net). Extracts from these fresh recordings can be found in the listening section.
The concert cycle quel monstre voy-je là? - early and contemporary music about transience and the cd echoes of harmony attracted considerable interest in the press. A selection of articles and cd-reviews may be found in the press section.
After two rather calm years chant 1450 got a new line-up in january 2018. A very warm welcome to hanna järveläinen and jedediah allen to the ensemble! Already in january 2018 we recorded new demo songs (to be heard in the listening section), which are followed by cd-recordings in august 2018. For 2019, concerts with different and also new programmes are planned.
