Musiques d'Aujourd'hui in Pays de Lorient (MAPL) is an association created in 1993 at the initiative of musicians from the Pays de Lorien. Its purpose is to contribute actively to the development and structuring of contemporary music in the Lorient Agglomération and Morbihan departments.

MAPL's project is structured around three main axes:

  • the production, the professional creation and the diffusion of the current musics
  • territorial irrigation and the development of projects towards the public of the territory
  • arts education and support for amateur practice

Through the daily animation of two facilities, the Studios and the Armory, and the implementation of a project both at local and regional level, MAPL is a place of practice, experimentation, research , exchanges, training, information, creation, emergence and artistic and cultural innovations.

On a daily basis, MAPL accompanies 190 groups and local musicians via ** the Studios, five spaces dedicated to the reception of the rehearsal and to the recording **. The groups can also benefit from an artistic and technical accompaniment in partnership with the School of Music and Dance of Lorient, and an aid to the scenic and discographic creation.

Studios are open to all amateur musicians. We provide you with the necessary equipment and offer different packages according to your request. If you are in a group and you want to deepen your practice, it is also possible to follow a one-year training with the accompanying device "Plug'n'play".
