Territorial action

With Palimpseste, the Ensemble C Barré creates music during a whole season, on several territories simultaneously through the crossed views of the composer Jean-Christophe Marti and the artist walker, Hendrik Sturm.

On the theme of the Chappe Telegraph, a telecommunication network that existed precisely two centuries ago in France and its neighboring countries, the project will travel over the next three years along the Avignon-Marseille-Toulon axis, collaborating over the long term with partners from the educational and social milieu. For this third edition of the program, it is the Plan d’Aou district that is honored, with the participation of children from the Plan d’Aou school group, alongside musicians from the Ensemble C Barré directed by Sébastien Boin.


The history of the Chappe telegraph will be sung, told and played.

These will also be original musical walks concocted by the artist-promoter Hendrik Sturm, embellished with historical anecdotes, and punctuated by the listening of works from the C Barré repertoire chosen and created by the composer Jean-Christophe Marti according to the specificities of the places crossed…

At the end of these weekends rich in emotion, walking and erudition, you will have the opportunity to meet again the musicians of the Ensemble C Barré in a more classical form of concert, because one does not change a recipe that works!

Supported by Ministry of Culture-DRAC PACA, SACEM, CNM – Centre National de la Musique, City of Marseille, Région Sud-PACA, Département des Bouches-du-Rhône within the framework of the call for projects ” Ensemble en Provence “, Mécénat Musical Société Générale and Orange Foundation.
