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.

07.02 in Lausanne

Composed of two keyboardists, Marino Palma and Allan Broomfield, and a drummer, Noé Benita, this Franco-Swiss trio sets off on the Swiss and French music scene to create sounds that make the traditional musical boundaries waver between electronics. and acoustics. By combining the acoustic played and sampled sounds to the rippled and repeated waves of the synthesizer, the group experiences a hybrid and cloud harmony energized by the pulsating pulses of a nerve battery. Through these first compositions, the members of Erkalium develop a meditative aesthetic that explores the sound of the dream. It's all about fusing a universe with influences ranging from Detroit's minimal techno (Robert Hood), electro-jazz, ambient and experimental (ADMX-71) to House/funk from the 80s., and of course so much else.

AA Trio
07.03 in Lausanne

It's in September 2015 that the pianist Andrew Audiger formed the AA Trio with two musicians he met at the Lausanne HEMU, Louis Bourhis (Upright Bass) and François Christe (Drums). Inspired by legendary jazz trios (Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, Ahmad Jamal) and current musicians (Gerald Clayton, Craig Taborn), AA Trio plays Andrew's own compositions with freedom and cohesion. Together, the three musicians create an intense musical universe, between the right and bold piano playing, the depth of the bass and a powerful and elegant drums.
