A suite composed by Grégoire Simon, “Interstellar Waggle Swarm” sees various melodies and polyrhythmic structures join for a dance – thus re-arranging and forming ever new swarm-like constellations and musical textures. The term “waggle dance” refers to the honey bee’s figure-eight dance that sees them shake and move in order to share information with the rest of the colony. Just like bees when a storm is about to erupt, the 17 ensemble members remain in tight-knit/constant vibration with each other, as they get carried away in trance-like states, fight the ensuing chaos and always find clever ways to converge wherever the tide is taking them…
