Exquiste Scorpse is an exciting pan European musical creation. The concept is to create a multi territorial musical piece. It will highlight the inventiveness, the diversity and the richness of the European musical creation. The principle of “Exquisite Scorpse” (from “score” and “corpse”) is an adaptation of the “Exquisite Corpse game” to the musical creation.
Seven internationally renowned composers and songwriters are taking part in this musical creation. The resulting piece will be conducted by Franck Vagagnée live for its “Grand Premiere” during The Creators conference.
What is the future of the music creation? Our guest speakers will share their views on the future of music with the public.
