The Intercultural Medinea Sessions of the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra (MYO) are open to a dozen of young and talented musicians from the Mediterranean basin (building their careers to become professional artists) and who have an intense practice of musical improvisation, even of the composition. Each session is designed for a large diversity of musical aesthetics and Mediterranean expressions and hosts all styles of music using elements of improvisations (jazz, traditional music, early music, etc.).
Fabrizio Cassol, composer and jazzman in residence at the Camargo Foundation, guides these sessions and proposes to experiment with techniques of collective composition, within an ensemble, with the aim of leading to the creation of a common musical production which also reveals individual singularities. This training offers a unique intercultural experience of the life of an ensemble in creation, in rehearsals and on tour.

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the mobility of many artists has been restricted to short distances within the borders of their own countries. For this reason, the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra is proposing a unique and innovative version of its traditional Medinea Session led by Fabrizio Cassol, all the while continuing to respect the necessary sanitary regulations in place. Thanks to exceptional measures put in place, artists at the Fondation Camargo in Cassis and artists in their homes or in their confinement locations will work together to create a collective composition that will be performed and shared with the help of online tools.

Session organized by the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra and the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, with the support of Medinea, the European Union's Erasmus Plus Program, Fondation Orange, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the Mécénat Musical Société Général.

Los Angeles, 1969, protest is growing in the academic community. Marc, a lonely young man, is ready to die for the revolution but he cannot stand to be bored to death. Witnessing a shooting in which a black student is shot by a policeman, he is about to shoot back when suddenly the policeman is shot. Fearing prosecution for a crime he did not commit, he flies into the desert on a stolen plane...
