This big band, initiated by the drummer Bruno Tocanne (the artistic director imuZZic) for the ten years of the collective, offers an orginal music without border: from pop-rock-psychedelic to free jazz, without forgetting groove or world music,... A big band is a big gamble in the current context, but it fits into the artistic utopia wich defend these artists. With this “egalitarian” orchestra, not subjected to the autocracy of a single leader - each one comes with his ideas, his sense of play, of listening to others and his scores - it's all the enthusiasm, the generosity and the inventiveness of this collective of musicians wich is represented here. The imuZZic collective projects have always demonstrated a music accessible without oversimplification, free, uncompromising and played with a great sincerity : the trio Resistances and its activist songs, the I.Overdrive trio and his work around the Syd Barrett repertoire, and Bruno Tocanne with his “new dreams” serie.
