Projets en cours

Sibley Project

I'm currently helping with the Sibley Mirroring Project, i am participating rather sparcely recently, but i still contribute there form time to time.

Martucci's 2nd Symphony

I'm slowly but steadily typesetting the first movement of the Giuseppe Martucci's 2nd Symphony in F Major op.81. I don't have much time to give to this project, but since no one seems to do it, and since i find very unfortunate to not have an edition of this wonderful music available on IMSLP ( the manuscript is a precious document, but not very useful for a performance ), i think it's worth to give it a go !

Pedagogical clarinet arragements

As part of my practice as clarinet teacher, i'm making several arrangement for clarinet duos, trios, quartets,...suitable for performance by pupils. I will release them under Creative Commons License in order to help the development of clarinet practice.

Brief CV :

I've got a music teacher degree, and i'm a former pupil of the composition classes of Conservatoire de Toulouse, Conservatoire de Versailles and École nationale de Musique de Nîmes. I'm very eclectic in my choices but i love Ravel's music more than anything else. I'm very fond of music by Pierre Boulez, Frank Zappa, Morton Feldman, Bruno Mantovani, Maurice Ravel, Igor Strawinsky, Claude Debussy, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Pascal Dusapin, Phillipe Manoury, Terry Riley, Steve Reich, John Adams, Magnus Lindberg, Gerard Grisey, Michael Nyman, etc....

Edit 4th June 2017

I'm realizing this list consist only of male composers, so here is a short list of valuable female composers :

Olga Neuwirth, Lily Bloulanger, Galina Ustvolstkaya, Sofia Gubaïdulina, Betsy Jolas, Sophie Lacaze, Suzanne Giraud, Gloria Coates, Frangiz Ali-Zadeh, Sky MacClay, Ruth Crawford-Seeger, Margaret Brouwer, Meredith Monk, Laurie Anderson, Edith Canath de Chizy, Nicola Lefanu, Vivian Fine, Eliane Radigue, Liza Lim, Katharina Rosenberger.

Recording of modern open licence music

I've a passion for modern music, so if you want me to record a piece for clarinet, just ask me ! I may not have of lot of time depending on the period of the year ( September, December, March-April and June are in general terribly busy with music school tasks to do )

I'm still inexperienced with IMSLP, i hope i will have more time to help from now on.

Thank you et Bonne journée !
