Eve Risser

Eve Risser’ multifaceted musical creativity has been heard in various settings, festivals and groups throughout the world. From 2016 to 2019 her works with the With Desert Orchestra has been acclaimed on big stages. This is followed by a new variation of her orchestra untitled Red Desert Orchestra


Red Desert Orchestra is a hybrid formation in which musicians from Europe and Africa rub shoulders in the service of music resolutely haunting, magnifying the polyrhythmic intertwining to the point of vertigo through a writing as demanding in its form as resolute in its ambitions. Stakeholder of ten different configurations, from solo to large ensemble, Eve Risser develops in this context her talents as a composer by adding the sounds of balafons to her orchestra, djembes and bara, from West Africa. Lines and sounds weave in tireless hypnotic loops that lead the listener to a spiritual and nomadic experience, from which brilliant soloists emerge.
