HISTORY

The Origin

  Rock in Opposition or "RIO" was a movement representing a collective of "progressive" bands in the late 1970s united in their opposition to the music industry that refused to recognise their music. It was initiated by Henry Cow in March 1978 when they invited four European groups to come to London and perform in a festival called "Rock in Opposition".
  The groups that performed in the inaugural event were: Henry Cow (UK), Stormy Six (Italy), Samla Mammas Manna (Sweden), Univers Zéro (Belgium) and Etron Fou Leloublan (France). After the festival, RIO was formalised as an organisation with a charter whose aim was to represent and promote its members. Three more bands were also added to the collective: Art Bears (UK), Art Zoyd (France) and Aksak Maboul (Belgium), and further festivals were held later in France, Italy and Sweden. Chris Cutler of Henry Cow established the ReR (Recommended Records) label in the UK, as a model for a non-profit music company.
  RIO as a movement did not last long, but its legacy still persists. While RIO never referred to a type of music (the original RIO bands were quite diverse musically), it is still often used by listeners, musicians, and distributors to classify bands (generally bands that appeared at the RIO festivals or bands related to or derived from the RIO bands). Bands familiarized with the RIO movement and genre today include: Thinking Plague (USA), Present (Belgium), Miriodor (Canada), Ahvak (Israel), Neblenest (France), 5uu's (USA), Guapo (UK) and U Totem (USA).
  The term "RIO" today is almost synonymous with Avant-progressive rock or Experimental Rock.

Rock In Opposition France Event 2007

During an encounter in Brussels in December 2005, Michel Besset and Roger Trigaux discussed their common desire to initiate in France - and everywhere in the world, since that fight is of an interplanetary kind! - new dynamics around those musical forms that have thrilled them since the early 70's. For Roger, this desire is linked to the permanent commitment of a musician who always refused to compromise or to "adapt" his music to the mainstream taste of non-demanding audiences, and who always had to cope with the obstacles generated by such a radical approach. For Michel, this is the willingness to come back to these musical streams that have shaped the identity of "Transparence", the association he founded in 1974, back in a period of deep musical innovation, when truly committed artists gave birth to numerous passionated initiatives that were often risky and far off the beaten tracks of commercial production. In the meantime, both Michel and Roger have witnessed a worldwide flourishment of music Festivals dedicated to so-called "progressive" musical forms, but in fact mostly presenting artists who are redundantly recycling the recipes of the same old cult-bands.

Something had to be done...

The birth of that new musical event is in continuity with gigs that have been promoted for the last three decades by the association "Transparences" in Carmaux, Albi and other locations in Southern France (with such artists as Henry Cow, Art Zoyd, Léo Ferré, Univers Zero, Magma, Nucleus, Contrepoint, Present...).

This event illustrates how this association has always been a committed partner to the most UNCOMPROMISING artists, AGAINST a commercial system that forces them to adapt their creativity to a demand created by the system itself and IN OPPOSITION to a system that seems to be inescapable and self-consuming.

The idea is not to hide in the past.

Back in the 70's, artists had to fight to promote these so-called "radical" musical forms, and it's getting even more difficult nowadays. Just because that music is demanding - not that it requires an effort from the audience, but only because it appeals to his curiosity and his longing for new perspectives. The complex language, the emotion and the depth, the real collective work that characterize musicians who dedicated themselves to that music, made their way through several decades and finally reached the new generations, tired of hearing cheap discourses and mainstream merchandised music.

In France, one band epitomizes that fight: Magma, whose lasting musical influence has become more and more obvious as years have passed. But outside France as well, such artists as Robert Wyatt, Soft Machine, Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix have been important symbols for a whole generation.

Sometimes the music reaches its targ... when it has one!

Sometimes the music reaches its target… when it has one! Those musicians opened our minds and gave us enough strength to pursue that struggle, for ourselves, for the music and for the human condition in general. After more than three decades, we now realise how crucial that issue can be. After having experienced other forms of music, we are now able to understand the significance of the music we defend today.

HISTORIQUE

L’origine

  Rock In Opposition ou "RIO" est à l'origine un collectif de groupes Rock "progressifs" (à l’époque ce terme avait un sens), qui vers la fin des années 70, avait en commun leur opposition à l'industrie musicale qui refusait de reconnaître et de publier leurs musiques. RIO a été créé par Henry Cow en mars 1978. Ils invitèrent quatre groupes européens à venir à Londres pour un festival intitulé "Rock In Opposition".
  Ces groupes étaient: Henry Cow (UK), Stormy Six (Italie), Samla Mammas Manna (Suède), Univers Zéro (Belgique) et Etron Fou Leloublan (France).
Après le festival, RIO devint une une véritable organisation qui se chargea de représenter et de promouvoir ces membres.. Trois autres groupes rentrèrent dans le collectif: Art Bears (UK), Art Zoyd (France) et Aksak Maboul (Belgique).
  Plusieurs festivals RIO eurent lieu ensuite en France, Italie et Suède.
Chris Cutler d’ Henry Cow fonda alors le label ReR (Recommended Records) comme un modèle de compagnie de disque sans but lucratif.
  RIO en tant qu'association n'existe plus, mais l'esprit de cette démarche s'est imposée. Si RIO n'a jamais eu comme critère les "styles de musique", le terme RIO est souvent utilisé par le public, la presse et les distributeurs pour classifier certains groupes. Aujourd'hui, et parce qu'il est difficile de donner un nom à leurs musique, certains groupes se voient "étiquettés" RIO. Citons entre autre: Thinking Plague (USA), Present (Belgique), Miriodor (Canada), Ahvak (Israel), Neblenest (France), 5uu's (USA), Guapo (UK) et U Totem (USA).
  L'appelation RIO est maintenant synonyme d' "Avant-Progressive Rock" ou d’ "Experimental Rock".

Rock In Opposition France Event 2007

Lors d'une rencontre à Bruxelles en décembre 2005, Michel Besset et Roger Trigaux évoquent ensemble leur envie commune d’insuffler, en France, et ailleurs dans le monde, le combat étant interplanétaire, une nouvelle dynamique autour de ces musiques qui les passionnent depuis les années 70. Pour l’un (Roger), c’est l’engagement permanent d’un musicien refusant de "se vendre" ou d’ "adapter" sa musique aux "goûts" de publics, souvent peu exigeants, tout en assumant toutes les difficultés qui en découlent, qui provoque ce désir. Pour l’autre (Michel), c’est la volonté de "revenir" à des courants musicaux qui ont façonné l’identité de l’association "Transparence" qu’il a fondé en 1974. Période qui, pour lui, était porteuse d’un esprit musical particulier et d’un véritable engagement des artistes qui firent naître de nombreuses initiatives passionnées, comportant de véritables prises de risque car hors normes et donc hors des circuits commerciaux. De plus, Michel et Roger assistaient depuis plusieurs années à la multiplication dans le monde entier de Festivals de musiques dites "progressives" qui n’en ont que le nom, la plupart (pas tous heureusement) des artistes s’y produisant ne présentant en fait que de pâles copies d’anciens groupes cultes.

Il fallait présenter autre chose...

La naissance de cet événement est donc le prolongement des concerts développés depuis des décennies par l’association "Transparence" à Carmaux et Albi dans le sud de la France (Henry Cow, Art Zoyd, Léo Ferré, Univers Zero, Magma, Nucleus, Contrepoint, Present...).

Il est l’illustration de l’engagement de cette association aux côtés d’artistes décidés à faire de la musique SANS concessions, CONTRE un système commercial qui les réduit à vendre des produits propres à satisfaire une demande générée par le système lui-même. Et dans lequel beaucoup d’artistes sont aspirés malgré (???) eux. EN OPPOSITION à un système qui semble inéluctable mais qui se dévore lui même.

Il ne s’agit pas de se réfugier dans le passé.

Dans les années 70, il fallait se battre, et actuellement c'est encore pire, pour diffuser ces musiques jugées parfois difficiles d’accès. Simplement parce qu’elles demandent, non pas un effort de la part de l’auditeur, déjà flatté par des musiques de loisir, bêtifiantes, superficielles, mais simplement de la curiosité pour les démarches nouvelles, pour un autre devenir. Le langage complexe, l’émotion et la profondeur, le véritable travail en groupe qui caractérise les musiciens jouant ces musiques ont traversés plusieurs décennies, et intéressent de plus en plus les jeunes générations lassées des "discours" faciles, et des musiques de consommation courante.

En France, le symbole en est Magma, dont la portée de la musique s’est révélée avec les années. Mais Robert Wyatt et le Soft Machine, Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix ont été, hors hexagone, des référents importants pour toute une génération.

Parfois, la musique atteint son but. Quand elle en a un.!

Ces musiciens nous ont ouvert l’esprit, nous ont donné le courage de combattre, pour nous-mêmes, pour la musique, pour l’être humain dans son ensemble. Après plus de trois décennies, nous réalisons à quel point cela compte. Après avoir expérimenté d’autres formes musicales, nous sommes maintenant en mesure d’en comprendre toute la portée.

10 Years Already!

When we organized the 1st Rock in Opposition (RIO) in 2007 we did not know that this event would have such longevity. At first every other year, this festival then took off each year by the attractions that it exerted to music-lovers of the whole world.
The quality of its programming and the family atmosphere of this event is no stranger.
The public of R.I.O. Has gradually developed around a family of faithful who comes from both North America and Asia.
For this anniversary we wanted (once again but especially this year) to create a unique moment.
A condensed version of the previous years which illustrates the unique spirit of the R.I.O : Its singular musical line, its sense of welcome, and its extraordinary encounters.
So here comes the time to find the audience that has trusted us during all these unforgettable editions.
The program can be questionable (and discussed!).
It is perfectly (meticulously) chosen and assumed.
Rarely has it imposed itself on me so clearly and evidently.
Many already seen? Certainly ... not by facility, but by choice.
We invited the best of what was possible, not only a large part of the groups that marked the past R.I.O. events, but also references we are delighted to have and which we would not have dared to even dream of: SLAPP HAPPY and ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE.
We are certain that the event will live up to, or rather ... exceed your expectations!
For our part, we decided to celebrate this with all the warmth and friendliness that characterizes the atmosphere of this incredible festival.
A great weekend of music that will remain, I think, unique in our memories!

So let us see each other in September? Yes.
