 THE CROSSOVER OF JAZZ AND SACRED MUSIC

JEAN-CHRISTIAN MICHEL IN CONCERT

CROSSOVER JAZZ & SACRED MUSIC WITH CLARINET ORGAN & COMPUTER-CONTROLLED SYNTHESIZERS

Jean-Christian MICHEL has invented a unique musical style, inspired by a whole culture of classical music (notably the Sacred Music of JS BACH and a sophisticated Jazz. He is one of the founder of the "Classical-Jazz" Crossover, with the famous Jazz pianist John LEWIS and the drummer Kenny CLARKE from MODERN JAZZ QUARTET, and some others brilliant musicians.

Today the music of JEAN-CHRISTIAN MICHEL is still evolving. Calling on the multidimensional sounds given by modern technology, the composer has created "JAZZ & SACRED MUSIC CROSSOVER", a futuristic music with spatial echoes, which remains warm-hearted and grandiose.

JEAN-CHRISTIAN MICHEL has discovered how to create a music which is ultra-modern, yet touches the heart with a "primitive emotion" and does not release it. Certain musics lead to dream, others, sustained by a flexible heartbeat, would give almost desire to dance...

Strict in its structures, the musical art of JEAN-CHRISTIAN MICHEL is just like the universe which it irresistibly recalls : harmonious, ample and timeless.

Reaffirming in the modernity its prodigious emotional power, the music of JEAN-CHRISTIAN MICHEL takes his listeners on strange star-splashed journeys.

 CHURCH AND CATHEDRAL CONCERTS

Logo cconcert église Jean-Christian Michel

Traditionnal church concert

Every recital begins with this call from the known towards the the unknown. Then one can listen to a strange music of which one did not even suspect the existence, so much is it difficult to define. When Jean-Christian MICHEL plays, he seems to find the notes beyond himself, in the "other dimension". He restores, throughout his recital, this mysterious force drawn from the infinite, and knows how to share it with a wonderful sensitivity.

The special sonority of his clarinet fuses with the resonances of the organ, in the virtual transparence of synthesizers brilliantly played by Monique THUS. (*) Because, of course, JEAN-CHRISTIAN MICHEL calls on real concert artists to exploit the beauty of the sublime sounds which he is using.
