Founded in 1965 by Pierre Métral under the name of 'd'Ensemble à Percussions de Genève', this formation of various settings has its origin in the percussionists of the Orchestre de la Suisse romande. It distributes commissions to numerous Swiss composers and has fruitfully collaborated with the dioramas of contemporary music for more than ten years. By changing its name to Percussions du CIP and expanding in number, taking on only the very best percussionists from the Geneva area, this ensemble has successfully extended its field of activity. In addition to performing its own concerts it also collaborates regularly with the Ensemble Contrechamp, participates at the La Bâtie and Archipel festivals and has worked together with its present artistic director, Steven Schick, for more than ten years.
