After completing a 12 minute composition, Rone worked with orchestral arranger Romain Allender to record the piece with the orchestra Les Siècles, accompanied by pianist Vanessa Wagner, and conducted by François-Xavier Roth and supported by Societe Generale.
"Motion" finds its roots in the advertisement spot of the new brand platform "You are the future", launched at the end of 2018. For this spot, Societe Generale asked Rone to come up with an original musical composition. As soon as it got public, the music became the object of a real craze and Rone received many requests for a long version.
Motion : the making of the electronic symphonia of Rone
Rone and Societe Generale got together and thought of an unusual encounter : Rone, the orchestra Les Siècles (70 + musicians), supported by Societe Generale, and 19 amateur musicians who also work at Societe Generale, led by conductor François-Xavier Roth and accompanied by pianist Vanessa Wagner, created a 12-minute electronic symphony.
Rone worked with orchestral arranger Romain Allender, known for his work with Alexandre Desplat. The whole was imagined and produced by General POP.
The track was released on April, 19th to raise money for the non-profit organisation "Orchestres à l’école" which aims to support the development and advancement of orchestras in schools.

380 amateur musicians and chorists, all Societe Generale staff members from France, Romania and Senegal, performed alongside professional musicians of the orchestra Les Siècles and were joined by a group of children from the Démos project, which aims to open up classical music to young children and is also supported by Societe Generale. For this fourth Playing for Philharmonie, three concerts are scheduled, one of which is included in the annual programme of the Paris Philharmonie and so open for the first time to the general public. This great collective adventure was made possible thanks to the strength of the relationship between Societe Generale and its two partners, the orchestra Les Siècles and the Philharmonie of Paris.
