JULIE CAMPICHE QUARTET
/// Project created in 2016
Repertoire: original compositions
Direction: Julie Campiche
After 8 years with her group Orioxy, Julie has begun a unique musical adventure in a purely instrumental form.
This new project evolves in a strangely melancholic atmosphere. The electronic effects intertwine in a delicate yet powerful acoustic space. This uncluttered electro-acoustical experience leaves a lot of room for a wide range of improvisation.
Julie’s compositions are inspired by some of her generation’s most urgent concerns. Her music induces reverie or it focuses on current events, such as in Onkalo that derives its name from a stockpile of radioactive waste. We also find Flash Info, which evokes the media’s incessant flow of news.
" As regards bands which particularly impressed me, the combination of harp with saxophone, bass and drums in Julie Campiche’s Quartet stood out; they created a very attractive and distinctive sound."

The Onkalo piece has been selected to appear in the compilation SWISS JAZZ no rules which was published in November 2016 in the English magazine Jazzwise. This compilation was on the playlist of British Airway and Swiss airlines on December 2016.
