EPFL Lausanne

welcome to epfl lausanne

At the southern end of the ArtLab building, the Montreux Jazz Café @ EPFL is dedicated to showcasing the famous Festival's archives, listed as a UNESCO world heritage treasure. EPFL, in charge of the digitalization and preservation of these recordings through the Montreux Jazz Digital Project, has also developed tools to enable visitors to navigate, view, and listen to the archives. The Montreux Jazz Heritage Lab, one notable example, makes it possible to completely immerse oneself in Montreux concerts. The Montreux Jazz Digital Project, in which numerous EPFL labs participate, can count on the support of several partners.

06.12 in Lausanne

Kolmoset (brelan in Finnish) was formed on a stroke of luck: on their arrival in Lausanne in September 2015, the three young French people who came to study at the Haute Ecole de Musique moved into the same residence. The idea of playing together is born naturally enough. Informal sessions become rehearsals in which, like a rock band, compositions and arrangements are created collectively. The trio takes advantage of the flexibility of its formula without harmonic instrument (inspired by the trio of Sonny Rollins, Ornette Coleman or the FLY group) to approach the interaction in a playful way, focusing on everyone's listening and proposals. The repertoire is built around this idea of play, mixing re-readings of standards, original compositions and free improvisations.

Julie Campiche Quartet
11.04 in Lausanne

After 8 years on the road with her band "Orioxy", Julie is now embarking on a new adventure with an instrumental formula. This new project composed of Swiss musicians of the new generation offers a cinematic music tinged with a strange melancholy. The electronic effects of each instrument interweave in delicate and powerful sound environments. An electro-acoustic and refined project that gives pride to improvisation! In particular, Julie's compositions draw their inspiration from the great questions of her generation. Through her music she offers a space for reverie or a perspective on current topics, as in the case of the song Onkalo that takes its name from the first site of permanent storage of radioactive waste, or Flash Info piece that evokes the incessant flow of the media.
