As part of the festival-agora "Utopia Exotica", organized by IRCAM at the Pompidou Centre in París, on 14 June Hèctor Parra premieres his latest work Tentatives de Réalité, commissioned by IRCAM. The work is for cello and electronic music controlled by gesture capture, featuring the cellist Pierre Strauch, with the digital support of Thomas Goepfer and Benoît Meudic. Tentatives de Réalité forms part of one of Ircam's most important current projects which seeks a change of paradigm in the interaction between the interpreter and electronics in live performance, with the aim of attained a more organic, rich and stimulating relation for the musician.  More information at:
