Born in 1984, he taught himself to play the trumpet and then studied jazz and improvisation at the conservatories of Lyon (CNR) and Paris (CNSMDP). While developing his own personal and original language on his instrument, he researched, through different collaborations, an intuitive and spontaneous approach to music. His interest is essentially in different forms of improvised music for various formations,ranging from solo to orchestral.
His work is focused principally on two topics. Firstly an accoustic approach to instruments through research on sounds and sound effects in relation to the space in which they are produced. Secondly work on the amplification of instruments (“close miking”) with the aim of creating the illusion of an electric or electronic “machine instrument”.
