Olivier Manchon

The music of Olivier Manchon is best reserved for very early in the morning or very late at night, in those quiet moments when the air is still. It is a medley of opposites: all at once light and delicate, and murky and deep, filled with the dramatics of a major orchestra, but in fact, quite the opposite. With “Orchestre de Chambre Miniature - Volume 1,” which releases February 9 on ObliqSound, the French composer presents his miniature orchestra of five musicians - rather, an orchestra for a very tiny room or chamber. Manchon creates a cinematic narrative of jazz and classical music performed on strings and woodwinds, written especially for a select group of friends culled from the best of the jazz, indie rock, and classical realms.
