La Colonie de Vacances Short Info

‘La Colonie de Vacances’ initially standed for the collective tour that Papier Tigre, Electric Electric, Pneu and Marvin did during summer 2010.

The idea of 11 musicians playing together emerged in July 2010 at Tours’Festival Rayons Frais where they were invited to play at the 4 corners of Tours’ Castle courtyard.
This first successful and enjoyable experience turned ‘La Colonie de Vacances’ into the
quadraphonic sound system we now know, throwing the audience in the center of a musical ping-pong game played by two, three or four teams.

They recently invited musician Greg Saunier* from Deerhoof to compose a unique piece for their quadraphonic sound system.

Rather than an ordinary gig, ‘La Colonie de Vacances’ is a proper live show creation.
It is celebrated and acclaimed as one of the most unique and exciting project of today’s live music scene. It already made an impression at renowned venues and festivals such as Nuits Sonores Festival in Lyon, Le Printemps de Bourges, the CENTQUATRE-PARIS, the Gaité Lyrique in Paris, the Centre Pompidou in Metz, Festival Siestes Électroniques in Toulouse, Les 3 Éléphants in Laval and Festival 100% in Montpellier.

*Greg Saunier is the drummer and founding member of the San Francisco band Deerhoof, created in 1993. He studied music at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music (Ohio) and at the Mills College of Oakland (California) from where he got a masters in songwriting.

With the support of :
Lieu Unique / ‘Sortie d’Usine’ program for artistic creation (Nantes), Le Temps Machine (Tours / Joué-les-Tours), Le Confort Moderne (Poitiers), La Cartonnerie (Reims), CENTQUATRE-PARIS (Paris), Région des Pays de la Loire, l’Adami (society for the collective administration of performers’ rights) and CNV (National Center for Music).
