You’d be hard pressed in the current musical landscape (both in Belgium and abroad) to find a band that flips the codes of the traditional big band to such a degree. MikMâäk – a cross between big band, improvisation collective and avant-garde jazz ensemble – produces what sounds like organised chaos, featuring incredible solo interventions, flowing organically into liberating compositions… all with a disarming touch of humour.
The musicians search unfailingly for new sonic, rhythmic and harmonic openings.
It is this curiosity and thirst for discovery that led them to invite French guitarist Marc Ducret to join them.
Attracted by a wide variety of expressive forms, both in his guitar playing, which in itself incorporates a wide variety of sound production techniques, and in his work as a composer, Marc Ducret plays 6- and 12-string fretless, baritone and soprano electric and acoustic guitars,.
On stage, the sound and energy they produce are simply fascinating!
A powerful encounter that promises to be a stage performance you will not want to miss.
