Music and Film for Seven Musicians
ensemble mosaik

Where the boundary between science and fantasy runs is a question that has always been subjected to the changing worldviews of places and eras: what is a verifiable fact and what information has been freely invented has especially worried us in recent times. The composer François Sarhan expertly walks this fine line in his works. With the ensemble mosaik, he has created an online encyclopedia that will now be presented to an audience with a film and live performances.
