Accords Croisés is at once a concert office, a production agency and a recording-label of which the main aim is seeking out and promoting great voices of the world which are representative of a particular culture, aesthetic tradition or trend. Sacred or profane voices, voices conveying a particular tradition or straddling cultural divides, young or mature voices, rough or virtuoso ones – all these voices enable those they have been designated to represent to be heard.
A meeting-point for all who are fascinated by the voice and by what it conveys, Accords Croisés is currently expanding in three main areas:
1 The promotion of signed-up artists, allowing great voices of the world representing particular cultures, aesthetic traditions or trends to develop their careers by receiving practical help with their musical projects;
2 The stimulation of new encounters and creative opportunities arising out of the long-term collaboration between creative people from different backgrounds coming together to work on common projects; these may be preceded or further extended through live performances;
3 The enhancement of the label as a way of ‘giving the music back to the artists and to their public’. Thanks to the wealth of information they contain as well as a veritable feast of sound, our ‘disc-booklets’ permit an exploration of other musical traditions which is as intelligent as it is sensory.
