Privileging chamber music, Laurence Bancaud performs in various formations, from duet to septet. Particularly committed to today’s music and creation, she is a founding member of the association Les Signes de l’Arc “Harp on the move – creations and experiments” created in 2011. Author of the book published by Cig’art Editions in 2010, Tôn-Thât Tiêt, Dialogue with Nature, she is also co-author of The harp in the XXth and XXIth centuries: invoice, notation, directory published by Minerve editions in 2013. Appointed Professor of Artistic Education of the Public Service in 2000, she currently teaches at the Rungis Municipal School of Music (94) and the Municipal Conservatory of the 16th arrondissement of Paris. She supervises the International Music Academy Mille Sources Haute Dordogne in Corrèze and meets the flutist Carine Honorat with whom she founded the duet Horspiste.

Born in Angers, Carine Honorat made her professional career at the National Conservatory of Music in Paris where she obtained her degrees in Flute, Chamber Music and Pedagogy. Professor of Artistic Education at the Conservatory of Angers, she conducts a musical activity in France and abroad with various formations, with the ÉGÉRIE trio (flute, clarinet, piano) and in particular within a music distribution collective MINIUM 21, of which she is a founding member. In addition, she is invited to work regularly with the Pays de la Loire National Orchestra. His meeting with the harpist Laurence Bancaud at the Summer Academy and 1000 Sources Festival in Haute Dordogne led to the creation of the HORSPISTE Duo and many concerts. This training whose two instruments draw their history in mythology is for her the privileged place for a dialogue between the music of today, its sources and traditions.  Inescapable allies of sounds, words are an integral part of his universe; Carine Honorat publishes a collection of short stories “Petit musée du vide” in Edilivre Edition (author’s name, LILI H). In addition, the requirement of her profession as a musician led her to become professional in the teaching of YOGA.

Yonathan AVISHAÏ piano and Yori ZELNIK double bass @ Pôle d'Animation Culturelle
Sep 29 @ 17:00 – 19:00

Yonathan AVISHAÏ

Born in Israel, living in France for fifteen years, educator and music therapist trained in Bordeaux, Yonathan Avishai is an instrumentalist whose musical discourse remains in all circumstances structured by breathing, space, silence. A priori vital concepts since this thirty year old prefers rural life to the Parisian jungle.

After years in the Dordogne, here he settles in Burgundy, when he does not skate the scenes of the world, as brilliant sideman of the trumpet player Avishai Cohen – recruited for Into The Silence, one of the most elegant recordings of this year – or Omer Avital, a double bassist with whom he expresses his Israeli identity in a repertoire more reminiscent of traditional tunes. Beyond the meditative character of his play, Yonathan has, in the lineage of Ahmad Jamal, an inflexible mastery of pulsation and an innate sense of the most telluric blues, the most incisive swing. After a first album in trio, Modern Times, as sober as class, the pianist, passionate about the history of the American black music, returns in quintet and is interested in the jazz of the origins.


Bassist born in 1975 in Haifa, Israel. He starts playing electric bass during his teenage years in rock bands.
He studied jazz and bass at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and moved to Paris in 1995 to study at the CIM.
Since then he has settled in Paris and has performed on the French and international scene: Jazz in Marciac, Jazz in Vienna, Juan les Pins, North Sea Jazz Festival, Lincoln Center, Knitting Factory, Yokohama Jazz Festival … New York, Los Angeles , Brazil, Australia, Japan, South Korea, China, South Africa, Ethiopia, Russia, Sweden, Finland … about 60 countries in all.

Mark was born in London to Maltese parents and began learning the piano at a young age. When he was eleven years old, he gained a scholarship to the junior department of the Royal College of Music where he studied piano with Alan Rowlands the oboe with Rachel Ingleton. While there, he was principle oboist in the symphony orchestra and also played with the National Youth Orchestra and other chamber ensembles in big London venues like the Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall and Wigmore Hall. He seemed destined for a musical career and had an offer to study full time at the Royal College of Music. However, he declined the place and instead went to Clare College, Cambridge to read Physics and Computer Science. After university, where he spent perhaps too much time indulging in the abundant musical opportunities available, Mark pursued a career in computer graphics and worked on many multi-million selling computer games. The highlight of his career was winning a BAFTA for artistic achievement in 2014.


More recently, Mark has started to rekindle his musical ambitions and return to his first love – the piano. He has participated in several masterclasses with James Lisney, Christine Stephenson and Karl Lutchmayer among others. He has gained a diploma and licentiate in piano performance and is currently working towards a fellowship of the Royal Schools of Music.
