The Musica festival in tune with its time


CRITICAL - In Strasbourg, the event dedicated to contemporary music shifts the lines by introducing more technology. And therefore more sensory experiences than real concerts.

Special envoy to Strasbourg

For his third edition at the head of the Strasbourg Musica festival, Stéphane Roth continues to move the lines of musical creation. Even if it means sometimes colliding with actors and witnesses of contemporary music who feel out of date. That the avant-gardists of yesterday are the academics of tomorrow is an inevitable and undoubtedly salutary process. But being attentive to your time does not in any way oblige you to adhere to everything. This preamble to explain that the “classic” music critic can have difficulty following! Rather than rupture, Musica speaks of displacement. It is therefore not the end of writing, the basis of four centuries of Western scholarly music, but the redeployment of writing towards media and technologies: the composer Alexander Schubert, one of the stars of publishing 2021,is a "geek" and an ace of computer programming as much as staves drawn on music paper.
