In the Basque language, the words "Zazpiak Bat" express the unity of the seven provinces that constitue the Basque Country on either side of the Pyrenees.
Three Basque composers have come together for this concert.
In Zapiak Z, Bertrand Dudebout partly bases his composition on some features specific to Txalaparta, traditional Basque music. Kaiolan ("In the cage"), by the Basque composer Gabriel Erkoreka, is a reflexion on the work of the sculptor Louise Bourgeois (d. 2010), whose work expresses captivity through the creation of psychological spaces inhabited by familiar objects and souvenirs.
In Nebmaat, Alberto Posadas expresses his fascination for the pyramids of Egypt - as organisations in space, with symbolic, metaphoric and psychological values - and uses their dimensions to control the development of the sound medium and its parameters.
With these three works drawing their inspiration from traditional music, sculpture and architecture, two other works will be performed - Trait d'union by Philippe Harel and a creation byJavier Quislant, also a Basque composer, specially written for Court-circuit.
