Erik Truffaz & Benoît Corboz DUO

30 June
19:00 - 20:00

In the inspiration bonding them, there is sharing friendship, based on a strong artistic collaboration. Erik Truffaz and Benoît Corboz already shared the stage in Montreux in 1986, before flying to New York for an overwhelming urban getaway. 
There are also improvisation which is meditation in itself, as the two artists embark on a program with no limits and attempt to grab snippets of sound connecting them to the audience and the universe. Between heaven and hearth, between ying and yang, the duo flourishes in emotion.
In addition to the unknown, the program draws from Erik Truffaz 4tet last albums.

Science & conscience

Round table


Science is currently exploring through meditation, the weft of our reality in the moment and the relationship with oneself and others, in order to understand emotional regulation mechanisms, compassion, attention and its role in learning, decision making and education.

How do brain imaging, neuroscience, and epigenetics validate the effects of meditation on the brain, mind, neuroplasticity and gene expression?

What if meditation favors positive brain aging and the prevention of Alzheimer's disease?
