SoundInitiative
Soundinitiative comprises twelve musicians from Australia, Belgium, China, France, England, Italy, Poland and the United States who have each forged their own careers, both in France and abroad, as soloists and chamber musicians. Their mix of backgrounds affords the group a rich collective musical insight encompassing myriad cultures, musical languages and musical experiences.

Since its formation in Paris in 2011, the group’s activity has centered around the interpretation of contemporary repertoire, close collaboration with established and emerging composers to create new pieces, and the development of musical events with a strong emphasis on scenography and the physical and visual interaction with the audience.

The Wellington leg is part of a Oceania tour to Singapore, New Zealand and Australia supported by the Institut Français, SPEDIDAM and the Fonds d’Amitié France Nouvelle Zélande.
