On October 6th, 2001 at L’Espai, Barcelona, and in the course of the 5th. International Festival LEM, the 60 members (wind and percussion) of the Municipal Band of Barcelona interpreted four pieces composed specially for them by some of the most original, polyedric and vigorous musicians of the experimental scene; artists who after having plowed through a prolific trajectory in personal projects quite removed from tradition, have not renounced to co-work with other sound registers such as symphonic formations or chamber groups. Koji Asano, Pascal Comelade with Jakob Draminsky, Pelayo F. Arrizabalaga and Joan Saura propose and conduct four musical experiences, unabashedly crossing the codes of the orchestral tradition, pussyfooting from the popular (the pasodoble "L’Argot du bruit" by Comelade and Draminsky) to electronic atmospheres ("Fairies in the Wardrobe" by Koji Asano, "Pieza giratoria" by Pelayo Arrizabalaga) to the impacts of improvisation ("S. T. 01" by Joan Saura). Crossroads with as many nuances and surprising elements as the history of music itself can bring.
