“A Fond” is a French ensemble of six musicians based in Orléans,the central region of France. This ensemble explores the electroacoustic possibilities of a traditional French instrument, the hurdy-gurdy, along with percussion through the genre of New Traditional Music. Producing cutting edge, abstract and melodic compositions, this group also delves into the realms of free electronic improvisation."Music that turns forward", this ensemble plays between French folk tradition and new contemporary music.
