We want to give new impetus to classical music, to reach audiences in a society where listening is increasingly rare and “artistic effectiveness” is the buzzword. We hope to bring back purity to this music whose codes have too often scared people away.
We think that classical works have a deep meaning that continues to touch us today and that their messages are destined to be shared as widely as possible. We want to prove that these works’ traditional forms do not constitute an obstacle to their discovery.
We find it unfortunate that musical styles continue to be segmented by time, space, and social contexts.
We wish to give back to classical music its freedom of movement beyond any constraints.
We think that music is meant to be shared, that it lives through the exchange between the one who gives and the one who receives. That live performance gives way to unique moments between the public and the artists, regardless of the setting.
Finally, we think it is vital that young musicians take the initiative to play by any means, anytime, anywhere, and in any style the music they are passionate about.
uNopia endeavours to turn these words into a human, musical adventure. We have therefore set up a participative association open to all along these lines – a mobile, modular place of performance creation (stage truck) that connects with European audiences … a laboratory to develop new forms of artistic expression!
