With traditional tales, fictional actions and gathered stories, the narratives of this musical show all reflect the question of our roles within our families. Brothers and sisters, grandparents, grandchildren, stepmothers, foster sisters, adoptive parents and natural parents. The pieces in Airs de famille are a mixture of composition inspired by oral tradition and electronic music. The music is based as much on acoustic instruments as it is on a mechanical orchestra controlled by a computer, formed of toy instruments, world percussion and objects from the attic.
