Description

Electro music was born 30 years ago in the underground nightclubs of Chicago and Detroit. A look back over a musical and global society phenomenon.

If you have cast an eye over the programme of summer festivals you will have noted that electro music enjoys a prominent position. It’s difficult to imagine that just 30 years ago, it was more or less confined to an underground movement. The creativity of musicians and black American DJs has over the years helped establish it as a major artistic trend in contemporary culture, surfing the wave of the digital revolution to conquer Europe.

The exhibition Electro, from Kraftwerk to Daft Punk at the Philharmonie de Paris takes a look back over this phenomenon which has crossed the boundaries of music to establish itself in artistic domains as varied as video, fine arts, cinema or live staging, a new theatre form combining concert and visual arts.

The exhibition also has an important protest, political and counter-culture dimension, a reflection of the culture and changes of our time.

An exhibition and also an experience

A soundtrack was needed that would do the event justice and who better than the DJ Laurent Garnier to embody the electro dream. Come for a real experience of sound and senses which will take you from house to techno, not forgetting French touch and dance music. Instruments, sculptures, photographs, installations, projections and of course legendary figures from the world of electro line the route.

From Kraftwerk to Daft Punk, not forgetting Jean-Michel Jarre, Robert Moog and Juan Atkins, this summer is all about electro!
