WHERE DO WE COME FROM ?
Our orchestra has not always been oblique!
Its history is long and winding, here it is:
Dijon University Symphony Orchestra
Parfaitement, l'OSUD !
Yes, perfectly, OSUD.
Under the direction of Flavien Boy, then Maxime Pitois, we rehearsed on campus, and our ranks were almost exclusively students.
And we were playing the classical repertoire.
Under the impetus of Maxime, we got down to modern creation, with one idea in mind: to cross and mix the arts.
This is how projects like Cirk Symphonik , or Mario Bros & co , etc. were born.
It gradually became the hallmark of the ensemble: the identity of the orchestra was born, it was now necessary to change the name!
The Zic-Zag Ensemble
Decked out with this brand new name, we set out to conquer the world.
Maxime Pitois (whom we warmly greet) leaves to study in Lausanne, the whole is entrusted to the baton of Alexandre Herviant.
We start a big jazz program, on this occasion we add to the whole a bassist (Florian Raimondi) a drummer (Jérôme Roubeau) and a keyboard ( Thomas Loyer )
The rhythm section was born, since then we can not do without it!
New name, new start!
Alexandre Herviant flies to new horizons (we wish him the best !!)
Benoit Graindorge takes over.
With him we persevere in the idea of playing new, original music.
Oblique is born, long live Oblique!
