“After my concert at Chamoisic I was approached by an older woman with a broad and warm smile, who said: “So experimental! Lovely!” I think this tells you everything you need to know about a unique and extraordinary festival!”
Fred Frith (2016)
“CHAMOISic = Amazing! What more can a musician say about a festival with such a human/community feeling and a super team and a loyal/growing audience and a gorgeous cable-ride to the town/stage, and risk-taking programming? Amazing = thank you!”
David Moss (Denseland), 10 August 2016, Berlin
“CHAMOISic is a very special festival, first time I have taken a funicolar to a concert, played out doors with the beautiful view of the Alps. But more important than the beautiful surroundings is the very welcoming people who runs it, the interested and enthusiastic audience, and the brave programming.”
Eivind Aarset (2016)
“Nestled in the Alps and accessible by cable-car CHAMOISic is a shining beacon for what a great small festival should be. Passionate organisers, and incredible setting and challenging yet engaging events received by a curious, generous audience. I’ve no idea how they have made this work but it does!”
Leafcutter John (London, 2016)
“Performing in CHAMOISic 2014 was an experience I’ll never forget; to be top of the world in that wild and beautiful mountainous setting was amazing enough, but also to be given the chance for my Ensemble to perform with the exceptionally versatile and open-minded Torino Teatro Regio Orchestra conducted by Fabio Gurian, and the spirit of generosity which permeated the festival, made it a wonderful and unique experience. Thank you CHAMOISic!”
Jocelyn Pook (Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut composer, London, 2016)
CHAMOISic è l’unico festival italiano che colloca musica sperimentale, elettronica e jazz in un contesto naturalistico davvero d’eccezione: infatti Chamois (Ao), a 1815mt nella valle del Cervino, è l’unico comune d’Italia in cui le auto non possono circolare, raggiungibile in funivia.
CHAMOISic is the only (free) music festival in Italy where it is possible to listen to experimental, electronic and jazz music, in a unique landscape environment, as Chamois (1850 mt), Matterhorn valley, is the only village in Italy reachable by cableway or on foot, where cars can’t circulate.
Giunto alla VII edizione, il festival, pur senza perdere la sua identità territoriale, da Chamois si estende per la prima volta ai tre Comuni della Valle del Cervino: Valtournenche, Antey-Saint-André e La Magdeleine.
Dal 29 luglio al 7 agosto 2016 nella Valle del Cervino CHAMOISic presenta una line-up eclettica, tre nuove location, una passeggiata sonora, un masterclass, concerti serali, incontri e proiezioni.
L’ingresso ai concerti è gratuito
