ABOUT

Composer and pianist, very attached to the fusion of the musical styles and inspired by the atypical instrumentations, he begins to forge his musical universe during his teens by forming groups in his garage or by integrating other existing ones: Passage (rock prog), Sugar Mama (reggae), Funkill (jazz funk), Galaxy Express, (rock electro), Aryos (Black metal), Scories (new wave), The Numismatists (Song) ...

His desire to explore pushes him later to integrate the conservatoire of music to follow a classical curriculum where he discovers and impregnates notably the music of Beethoven, Bartok, Debussy, Ligetti, to name only the most influential. During this period, he composed many pieces for solo piano and small chamber music ensembles.

This trip leads him to jazz and improvised music where he discovers new musical and artistic horizons. He will train the GAB trio (jazz) and will be the pianist for various jazz formations (from duo to big band). Passionate about music / image relations, he will return as composer and pianist for the Acrylic Painting Orchestra, Sextet with painter performer (Reg Alcorn), create Origins Group (Piano, African percussions and Cristal Baschet) and will sign several short musicals soundtracks.

Always in a desire to decompartmentalize styles and asserting himself in a "progressive" movement, he is currently a composer, pianist and carrier of several projects: Mental Medication (Quintet), ZadZa (Trio), C- LY (Duo).

On the other hand, he continues to compose for chamber music ensembles among others "The Garden of Delights" - String Quartet created by the Byron Quartet, "Unstable" - Saxophone Quartet, Vortex - Double Bass solo, Urban Suite - Solo piano. He holds the state diploma in classical piano (CESMD de Poitiers), musicology license (Paris, Sorbonne) and the diploma of music therapist (International Center for Music Therapy in Paris).
