Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp


Founded in 2006 by the double bass player Vincent Bertholet (creator of the label Bongo Joe), the Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp (mischievous title in homage to traditional African groups - Orchestre Tout Puissant Konono n°1, Orchestre Tout Puissant Polyrytmo etc...) marries the forms of its musicians while pushing them in their entrenchment. The result is a powerful, experimental, unstable and terribly alive sound. These characteristics are found on We're OK. But We're Lost Anyway, the band's fifth release.

Extracted from their respective biotopes, these 12 protagonists develop a repetitive musicality that, deployed in successive waves, creates a feeling of trance. Mixing free jazz, post punk, high life, brass band, symphonic mixtures and kraut rock, their unique sound goes beyond genre boundaries. Transcendental, almost ritualistic, the music is coupled with powerful lyrics, declaimed in rage against a world that is falling apart. Hypnotic and post-syncretic, the Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp, far from Tzara's manifesto, finds itself somewhere between Hugo Ball's phonetic psalms, a Sufi procession that turns into a brawl and a voodoo rite, but always with a precision proper to the monomania of an asperger.

From the village of Le Châtelard, the VerticAlp Emosson Funicular takes you on an impressive 700-metre journey with a maximum gradient of 87%, one of the steepest in the world! As you ascend, the view opens up onto an ever more grandiose Alpine landscape, until you reach the Montuires arrival station. From there a small path leads you to the Village des Branchés where the concerts will take place. Access is also possible on foot from Emosson via a path on the mountainside.
