Dramatically Yours, performed on a Buchla Music Easel K.
I am interested in soundtracks and like to be introduced as a "musical travel agent".
Since the early 2000s I have been performing the world, playing festivals all over Europe, Canada, USA, Mexico, Australia & Asia... Feeling lucky to release on several international labels such as Opa-Loka, Aagoo, Southern UK, Monotype, Beta Lactam Ring, Sub Rosa, HomeNormal, Important, Staubgold, etc...
I study Electroacoustic music at the CNRR Conservatory of Marseille where I am specialising in multi-channelled diffusion (Acousmatic spatialisation) and Modular Synthesis. I have initiated a platform/label aiming at promoting the genre:
Relying on electricity/amplification to produce, manipulate, work on sound-material, but trying my best to explore various genres and make sure that each of my albums differs from the previous one, trying to avoid routine and surprise my listeners.
Not musically trained/educated I lie outside the Classical genre but my scores incorporate traditional classical components in a predominantly unconventional manner which allowed me to being asked by Iancu Dumitrescu & Ana Maria Avram to join forces as a soloist in their Hyperion Ensemble + being invited by Jean-Paul Dessy (Musiques Nouvelles ensemble) and Raoul Lay (Ensemble Télémaque) to become in charge of electronics/turntables in their ambitious E. C. O. (European Chamber Orchestra) formation comprising of 33 soloists...
Fortunate enough to work with what people call a dream-team of collaborators: joining Lydia Lunch, Murcof, Eugene Robinson (Oxbow), Edward Ka-Spel (Legendary Pink Dots), Simon Fisher Turner, Cosey Fanni Tutti (Throbbing Gristle), Foetus, Pantaleimon, Graham Lewis (Wire), Barry Adamson, Andy Diagram, Scanner, Machinefabriek, Mira Calix, Kammerflimmer Kollektief, Justin K. Broadrick, James Johnston (Gallon Drunk/Bad Seeds), Mark Cunningham (MARS), Cindytalk, Orkest De Ereprijs, Stephen O'Malley, Strings Of consciousness or Faust onstage and-or in studio…
