Notebook Large Ensemble

Notebook Large Ensemble

The Notebook Large Ensemble is an international tentet reuniting Belgian, Italian, Japanese, Swiss and French creative musicians and was created by French-Japanese violist and improviser Frantz Loriot, around his compositions. These last were arranged by Swiss arranger and composer Manuel Perovic.
The music of this ensemble is a true amalgam of written parts and improvisation, by all means within the jazz vocabulary, but also reaching into free improvisation; leaving room for spontaneous happenings within the arrangements was one of the major aims of this project. The style of the music itself functions only as a carrier, therefore switching effortlessly between jazz, pop and even sometimes classical music. To quote Iannis Xenakis in response to the barrier of style: «it makes no sense!»
