Amor fati is a Bordeaux-based association created in October 2003.
Its main mission is to develop and support contemporary improvised music in Aquitaine, through a system of residential workshops, audio publishing, broadcasting and mediation. Based on the idea that the most innovative contemporary musical production deserves a very particular attention so as to satisfactorily settle in a given territory, we mean to favour the public access to the diversity of these practices and artists of this new scene - namely those from Aquitaine - as well as help them to present their work on a regional, national and international scale, and collaborate with international artists. Amor fati possesses no proper area for broadcasting because it is an open structure able to regularly associate with numerous partners and locations (cultural equipments, concerts halls, festivals, art centres, museums, private actions, public ans private locations).
Amor fati is part of what determines the diversity and therefore the richness of contemporary artistic and intellectual richness and develops its project through very diverse fields of actions : music publishing program, concert organisation, live recordings, cross-residential workshops, regional artists support, creations around the audio environment, show-cases, private concerts, residential worshops, audio postcards, artistic support, encounters in multimedia libraries, awareness actions (schools, particulars, …), audio walkabouts, workshops, audio heritage development...
Amor fati is a memmber of the POLA Federation (Artistic and Cultural Cooperative in Bordeaux), and of Les Allumés du Jazz.
Amor fati is supported by Conseil Général de la Gironde. Its audio publishing program is supported by DRAC Aquitaine and du Conseil Régional d’Aquitaine.
