Geneva ensemble, “Batida” is a collective of musicians, percussionists and pianists, eager to explore. They frequent both written contemporary music and improvisation, produce concerts or transdisciplinary scenic objects, and set themselves few limits in their experiments. Their concert-concepts unfold like poetic architectures, generating singular installations, invented instruments, unusual configurations.
“Virtuosos of the fusion of timbres”, according to the music critic of the daily newspaper Le Monde Pierre Gervasoni, they know how to explore the infinitely small at the heart of sound, and practice cutting-edge goldsmithing. Among the distinctions received, in 2018 they obtained the support of the cultural grant from the Leenaards foundation. Live, the public is seized by their scenic energy and their musical osmosis, qualities that they put at the service of pieces from the repertoire or collaborative projects with other disciplines. Batida is an explosive cocktail, it is the constancy of the bass, it is the harmonic buzzing of matter that spreads in vibrations.
