Back from Damascus

Happy new year everybody! I just came back from a beautiful trip that took me to Damascus via Beirut and Athens. Beside the joy of being in one of oldest and most beautiful city of the world, it was a great opportunity to meet and listen to several choirs from different horizons who are still very active despite the war. A very nice surprise was the unexpected opportunity to give a composition workshop in the Highest Institute of Music of Damascus (see picture below). The three days spent with seven young talented music students remains a beautiful memory and I hope to be able to come back soon.

“Thanatos” for electric bass

The premiere of “Thanatos” for electric bass performed by the composer on the 15th of January 2017 during Sunday Mass at the St. Matthew Church (Matthäuskirche) in Berlin.


“Noël” for Choir

Noël is a bittersweet Christmas choir piece I composed for the 5 years jubilee of Chorbeau. After the premiere of “Le Temps coule” by the Vocalconsort Leipzig in August 2016, it appeared to me very clearly that composing for the voice was something on which I shall concentrate in the future. The singing voice has something magical that touches the human heart so deeply. Noël had been on my mind for years and is not just another Christmas piece: it celebrates that special day but also remembers the permanent pain of the world.


Tonight: coming out at Trobairitz

Tonight is a big night for many reasons. One being that I will perform a complete new program involving my voice, my acoustic guitar and a healthy dose of french. More soon…
