Denis Bioteau's album - MODE HALLES

A few words to define the project?

Unique, amazing!


The goal of this campaign is to record a CD with a big band of 16 musicians playing in a modern and original way.

Denis Bioteau, composer, arranger and orchestrator.

This project represents 25 years of my own thinking about musical writing, which I wanted to concretize for a big band, in an atypical combination. On top of the traditional big band instruments (brass/saxophones/rhythm section), I added an electrified string consort (2 violins/viola da gamba/double bass viol) and a synthesizer violin.

This eclectic aspect is reflected in the mix of styles used, for example rock vs. serial music, or jazz vs. pop. Mode Halles combines my different experiences as a composer and musician!


1 campaign, 3 stages.

The 1st step: The musicians (rehearsals and recording), the studio, mixing and mastering are paid.
The 2nd step: The graphic creation and the booklet of the CD, the pressing of CDs are paid:  the boxes (crystal CD) are ready to be sent!
The 3rd step: SACEM/SDRM, press secretary, Score edition, KissKissBankBank, everything gets paid!

Over €15,000, the money will be used to organize concerts or, in these difficult times, to increase the remuneration of the musicians.
