The Museum of Ethnography Geneva (MEG) and the Montreux Jazz Artists Foundation (MJAF) are joining forces for a series of musical evenings entitled "Échantillonner le monde" (Sampling the World), presented by Neuchâtel sound artist Arthur Henry and featuring the ambitious video series "Sampling the World" that he launched in 2022 ( Equipped with microphones and recording devices, Arthur Henry stops off in different cities around the world to capture the sound traces of everything he comes across, from rubbish bins to trams, birds and, of course, the people who live there. For each of the "Sampling the World" evenings, Arthur Henry presents a sound portrait of a city that he has created. His presentation is followed by a listening session of recordings related to the theme, taken from the International Archives of Folk Music (IAFM). The selection for this third edition is made by Madeleine Leclair, Curator of the Department of Ethnomusicology.
The "Échantillonner le monde" evenings will be held in the MEG Café during the Nuits des Bains.
