Insub Meta Orchestra

Active since:

The Insub Meta orchestra (IMO) is a large ensemble gathered around the experimental and electroacoustic practice. It was founded in 2010 by the Cyril Bondi and d’incise duo. It consists of about fifty permanent members that form the thirty international musicians present at each concert. Born from questionings on improvisation in a large group, the IMO built with time a strong collective and typical background where the individual gesture get lost in the production of global sonic states. Thus subtle matters emerge and interact with silence. The notions of improvisation or composition become confused in a constant research of a specific development in the context of this orchestra

Insub Meta Orchestra: Ten / Sync

Read "Ten / Sync" reviewed by John Eyles

Read "Incunabulum" reviewed by John Eyles


Although their discographies are both liberally sprinkled with duo recordings, this album seems to be the first time that the Swiss pair of reed man Hans Koch and keyboardist Jacques Demierre have recorded together as a duo. Both have been members of Insub Meta Orchestra and, for a period, were simultaneously in the ensemble long enough ...

Two INSUB releases

Read "Two  INSUB releases" reviewed by John Eyles


When Switzerland's INSUB records issued its first two releases in a new format in early 2014, that innovative format got nearly as much attention as the music itself. Solving the download vs. physical object debate, its combination of attractive packaging (including A3 poster-size artwork) with a download code gave customers the best of both worlds. That ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
