The Insub Meta orchestra (IMO) is a large ensemble gathered around the experimental and electroacoustic practices. It was founded in 2010 by Cyril Bondi and d’incise duo. It consists of about fifty permanent members that form the thirty international musicians present at each concert. Born from questionings on improvisation in a large group, the IMO built with time a strong collective and specific background, where individual gesture gets lost in the production of global sonic states. Thus, subtle matters emerge and interact with silence. The notions of improvisation or composition become confused, in a constant research of a specific development in the context of this orchestra. Its axes are the place of silence, an electroacoustic and extensive listening, work on durations, mimetism, low volumes, non-hierarchical relations, circulation of informations.
