Bio (EN)

Freelance percussionist and composer, he studied at the CNSMD of Lyon with Jean Geoffroy and Robert Pascal, devoting particular attention to the interaction between instrumental and electronic gesture, using computer programming, new media and new instruments.

Turning together these various activities, he’s distinguished primarily as an insatiable experimenter, a soloist (collaborating with composers such as Ondrej Adamek, Jose-Miguel Fernandez, Federico Schumacher, Cristian Morales-Ossio, Andrea Vigani and Vincent-Raphaël Carinola), a composer (collaborating with ensembles such as Ü in Estonia, Aashti or the Taipei Chinese Orchestra in Taiwan, the Spat’Sonore collective), working for the ballet (with Yuval Pick’s The Guest company) or with the theater (Compagnie Complètement Dramatique, or the Irina Brook Company at the National Theatre of Nice and the Salzburg Festival).

Beyond the field of contemporary music and free improvisation, he is interested in traditional Indian music and travels regularly to South India to follow the teaching of specialists such as Balakrishna Kamath or Manik Munde and incorporate the language of Carnatic music to its musical universe.

These multiple experiences led him to develop a personal musicality,  within the Trio de Bubar (with whom he created the shows « Chiaroscuro », « Dans l’ombre de Norman McLaren », « Bubaropolis », based mainly on objects hijack and manipulation), Les Émeudroïdes (post-jazz quartet with whom he created « Madhura Sopnam », « l’Emupo »), the collective Spat’Sonore or the Ensemble Orchestral Contemporain.

He regularly performs abroad in Europe, America and Asia, recording for various record labels (Neos-music, Naïve, Sismal Records, Pueblo Nuevo).
