Their music has moved beyond the roots of Carpathian music that was the original inspiration, adding elements of improvisation that cross over into jazz and rock.

ORCHESTRE TOUT PUISSANT MARCEL DUCHAMP XXL

In 2016, ten years after the foundation of the Orchestre Tout Puissant Marchel Duchamp, Vincent Bertholet finally brought to life his dream of a "real" orchestra. The orchestra became XXL, bringing together an original group of accomplices and an English string section that evolved over time. From that moment on there were 14 on stage. The strings were tripled, the rhythm section was doubled, the voices increased and the guitar riffs sound like a minimalist cascade. This is the formation that OTPMD will adopt to present its latest album in Assisi. Recorded at the mythical Real World Studios and produced (as was the case for the previous album) by John Parish (PJ Harey, Eels), it is called Sauvage Formes. The work is as much geometrical as it is organic: a journey in 8 stages that tells the story of an orchestra without a home, a battalion of unlimited generosity, a savage form that has never required a maestro to tame its imagination and determination.
