Repertoire La salle des fêtes, by Ela Orleans

Cryptic presents the sixth in our sensory series of audiovisual appetisers broadcast at 13.00 GMT (and available for 24 hours) on the second and fourth Thursday of every month to offer you a welcome lunchtime escape from emails and online meetings. Down tools and indulge in some digital delights to invigorate and inspire for the afternoon ahead.

Time to take your lunch break and savour a Sonic Bite…  on Thu 26 November

Recalling her own dreamlike experience of entering the Musée d’Orsay’s Salle des Fêtes and the building’s curiously checkered history, join Ela Orleans on an enchanting exploration of this intriguing museum installed in a former Parisian railway station. Featuring classical orchestration, musique concrète, elements of AI and lyrics inspired by Giorgio de Chirico’s surrealist masterpiece Hebdomeros, it is a timely ode to travelling, movement and preservation.

A Cryptic Commission presented as part of a digital double bill with Alex Smoke.
