Le compositeur :
Martin Loridan graduated from the Paris Conservatoire (CNSM). His catalog includes works for Orchestra, Concerto as well as Chamber and Vocal music.
His works investigate the role of gesture and its visual/acoustic impact. By integrating acoustic/physical/human phenomena such as breath, air, vibration and space, his musical language explores the borders between instrumental performance and human perception.
His works have been performed worldwide by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, the Arditti Quartet, the ensembles Klangforum Wien, l’Instant Donné, Cepromusic, Mise-en, Lucilin, Soundinitiative, Quatuor Tana, the soloists Claude Delangle, Claudio Pasceri, Michel Supera, Yumi Suehiro. He has achieved distinction in several composition competitions such as the Rachmaninov Competition (Darmstadt), the Vareler Prize (Berlin), the Reinl-Prize (Vienna), Sorodha (Antwerp), Prix André Jolivet (Paris).
His current projects include the composition of a cycle of chamber/solo pieces involving the use of amplification. He currently pursues a PhD in composition (practice-led research) at the University of Leeds (UK). His works are published at BabelScores.
