    In the Basque language, the words "Zazpiak Bat" express the unity of the seven provinces that constitue the Basque Country on both sides 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 voices 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 - a creation byJavier Quislant, also a Basque composer, and a new piece by Bernard de Vienne "En aparté", with sounds resulting in a magma of affects and quasi organic sensations among which moments of more perceptible "conscience" arise.
