"percussion, drums, various objects, electronic" -

Presentation

Eclectic musician, mainly percussionist and composer, he studies at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Dance of Lyon and devotes himself particularly to the new instrumental lutheries, by programming, composing and the interpretation of mixed works.

He distinguishes above all as an insatiable experimenter, accumulating multiple experiences as soloist (by collaborating with the composers Jose-Miguel Fernandez, Federico Schumacher, Cristian Morales-Ossio, Andrea Vigani, Vincent-Raphaël Carinola, Ondrej Adamek), as composer (with diverse international ensembles such as Ü in Estonia, Aashti and Taipei Chinese Orchestra in Taiwan, the collective Spat’ Sonore in France), by joining the ballet (with the company The Guest of Yuval Pick) or the theater (with the Compagnie Complètement Dramatique of Guillaume Perrot, the Company Irina Brook at the National Theater of Nice).

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 integrate 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 », around the object highjack 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, Umlaüt, Urborigène).
