Bye-Bye

Bye-Bye

We’ve decided to end our music series at Musée du quai Branly.

The series’ premise was to hand over the keys of the museum’s audio collections to artists, who then played in the museum’s garden live shows, DJ sets or hybrid performances inspired by the archive. From 2011 to 2017, Les Siestes Electroniques had thus offered to 60 artists a unique access to the ethnomusicological collections of the museum.

We’ve produced a short video documentary in order to say goodbye to this beautiful adventure and remember how precious it is to be able to develop such discovery times.
