Concert: Ophonius Quintett Jazz & Sciences

17.30 – 18.30

Ophenius was born at the end of the twentieth century from the meeting of saxophonists and acoustic research professors with a passion for music. The combination of professional musicians and acoustic research professors inevitably led the group to combine the arts and sciences, and to propose an original and innovative concept: scientific concerts.

On the occasion of the Inter-Noise 2024 conference, the group is proposing an original creation using elements from several shows.
