The Battery-Band Orchestra

The battery-band is a type of band.

Its uniqueness is that it is historically composed only of instruments of order, bugles, trumpets and drums of cavalry and hunting horn. Only instruments with natural sounds, that is to say that the note is formed by the musician without using any mechanism (piston, key, slide ...) are allowed.

However, since its introduction early this century, it has grown progressively over the development of new instruments to his repertoire at variance with those rules (Saxhorn bass, contrabass, sousaphone, percussion, keyboards ...) to become the "Battery-Band Orchestra". His repertoire ranges from traditional marches in parade jazz, through the variety.

Les batteries fanfares sont aujourd'hui composées avec l'instrumentation suivante :

- Trompettes naturelles en mib (voire bugles mib, mais ils restent rares)
- Clairons sib (Le bugle naturel en sib ayant lui tendance à se développer)
- Cors en mib
- Trompettes basses mib
- Clairons basses sib
- Euphonium sib, ce dernier instrument est récent. Il est apparu dans ces formations vers 1993, certains compositeurs, fans de brass bands à l'anglaise l'ayant intégré à leur écriture. Sa sonorité douce et les posssibilités harmoniques qu'il a permis d'offrir aux BF en ont rapidement fait un apport quasi incontournable. Il constitue de plus une étape intéressante pour un jeune qui voudrait jouer ensuite du tuba.
- Tuba sib (ou en ut dans certaines formations, les batteries fanfares sont généralement pauvres et on prend ce qu'il y a !)
- Les claviers Glock, Vibra , Marimba, sans être généralisés sont de plus en utilisés (parfois même un peu trop, au détriment de la masse des cuivres)
- Percussions :
Le triptyque tambour cymbales grosse caisse, hier incontournable, et même s'il reste utilisé, a peu peu fait place aux percussions plus actuelles : batterie, percussions exotiques, accesssoires divers.

Enfin on y rencontre parfois des guitares (basses ou électriques) des claviers à touches (piano synthé..), avec plus ou moins de bonheur, le dosage, parfois très réussi pouvant rapidement tourner au melting pot indigeste.

Un certain nombre de BF explorent aujourd'hui des univers bien à elles. La disposition des pupitres n'est pas aussi "normée" que dans les brass bands, et ces formations étant essentiellement amateurs, aucune ne ressemble à une autre.
Le répertoire est très varié, même si ces dernières années il s'est résolument orienté vers la variété, parfois jusqu'à la caricature.
Globalement en difficulté, au niveau de leurs effectifs, ces formations continuent malgré tout d'exister, du fait de la passion des musiciens qui en font partie, de la solidarité entre les formations, et de l'intérêt qu'elles continuent de susciter chez les jeunes. Cette solidarité, très forte et tout à fait louable, a son revers. Le monde des BfFreste assez fermé, et a du mal à réellement s'ouvrir sur l'extérieur. Les BF voudraient parfois être aimées pour ce qu'elles sont plutôt que pour la musique qu'elles jouent, ce qui n'est pas gagné !
Elles ont ces vingt dernières annnées accompli des progrès considérables, en terme de qualité musicale, ce dernier point étant ce qui leur était (est ?) principalement reproché.
Il y aurait encore beaucoup à dire...

La définition donnée par wikipédia est bien sommaire.
Je suis preneur de tout complément d'information de manière à rendre ses lettres de noblesse à cette noble formation. k
