UN is an improvisational society. Each of us is involved in the artistic realization as much as in the social, non-hierarchical organization of the ensemble. The UN gathers, depending on the context, 23 musicians, 2 filmmakers and 1 light artist, 1 performer.
It is the individual and his practice that are at the center of this orchestral experimentation and not his dilution in the collective. It is important to us to preserve its singularity within a protean mass without obstructing the collective space.
The UN improvises (Unité Nodale), invents game devices (Espace tendu, Mottes), works with the cinematographic image (Unkino).
