Composition and performances



My compositions are based on three different but perfectly compatible centers of interest:

Music and image, in collaboration with other artists – mostly sculptors or painters
Music and space

A piece like Palmipèdes corbuséens palmés (1995) combines the three centers of interest: a mezzo-soprano wanders into the strange acoustical space of a water tower built by Le Corbusier, and the building itself is put in resonance through an interactive sound sculpture. A piece with video, Peking Duck Soup (2008), combines a completely written part with an improvisation setup, where the video part (shot both in advance and in real-time) plays a tribute to the mirror scene of the almost homonymous Marx Brothers movie.

Performances including improvisation

OMax-driven improvisations (2004-present) In addition to the compositions including OMax with video (Peking Duck Soup, Memories of Monk2), or without (like the most recent Duck Laughs), I have been performing with the laptop in many setups.
