In the framework of Cross-residency - musical residencies and creations Quebec/Europe, Sixtrum invites Italian composer and mathematician Carmine Emanuele Cella to create his triptych for augmented percussion instruments.

Italian composer and mathematics researcher Carmine Emanuele Cella, a professor at CNMAT in Berkley, joins Sixtrum to create his triptych in which percussion instruments remotely take control of each other: developed for the Inside-Out Quartet (2017), and then developed with the Kore Sextet (2019), works are composed of percussionists from Strasbourg. Cella has developed a new instrument called "xulon", which allows the sound of the instrument and the interaction with the performer to be modified according to the gesture. Acoustic instruments thus become augmented instruments that merge the immersive aspect with the localization of the source, in a new approach to mixed music.
The third work on the program is a duet composed for Sixtrum, which completes the triptych imagined by the composer at the beginning of this project, and which will contrast with the general device installed around the public.
