JRM – le Jardin de Recherches Musicales

Yearly open air radio art festival on Paris' petite ceinture railway.

The J.R.M. (Jardin de Recherches Musicales) is a yearly mini FM festival that began in 2014. An afternoon of sun, sonic experimentation, field recordings, and performances on the disused little belt railway that goes all the way round Paris.

The 2018 edition was a scorcher… we played works from our sister garden radio Datscha Radio , learnt all about the JRM tools by DR Naud, listened to readings on nature by Luciole Naud and Maella Mickaelle, and were treated to wonderful a performances by Jean-Philippe Renoult, Rodolphe Alexis, Ocean Viva Silver and Meryll Ampe,

Roll on 2019 !

The 2016 edition took place under a sky of Summer sun and included many delights and specially composed audio works including a singing salad, a shruti box on loops, an animal quiz and performances by two escapees from post Brexit Britain. Many thanks to : La Cosa Preziosa, Claudia Wegener, Marie Lisel, Aline Pénitot, Max Ripple, Alma Tischler Wood, Rodolphe Alexis, Fabrice Naud, Radio Cegeste aka Sally Ann McIntyre, Ocean Viva Silver, Alan Dunn, Julie Rousse, Sophie Couronne, Isabelle Stragliati, Gabi Schaffner, Jean-Philippe Renoult, Cyril Lepetit and Korinna McRobert.
