Biography (french):

Born 11.3.1952 La Plata, Argentine

Après des études musicales de composition et piano en Argentine, il poursuit son cursus en France, à partir de 1977, dans la classe de Composition Électroacoustique et de Recherche Musicale du Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris. En 1983, il rejoint l'INA GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales de l'Institut National de l'Audiovisuel) où il est responsable pédagogique pour les systèmes numériques destinés aux compositeurs. Il devient ensuite directeur artistique du GRM. Depuis 1997, il en est le directeur.

Ces dernières années, il s'est plus particulièrement intéressé à la problématique de création des compositeurs, à leur rapport à la recherche et au développement de nouveaux outils qui intègrent leurs demandes et élargissent le domaine des concepts appliqués à la composition électroacoustique.

Il compose des musiques sur support, pour petits ensembles et support ainsi que pour instruments traités en temps réel. Le son acousmatique reste au centre de ses préoccupations. Sa musique a été enregistrée sous différents labels européens et américains, il est l'auteur de nombreux articles sur la musique acousmatique et la projection du son.

Docteur en Art et Technologie de l'Université Paris 8, il enseigne le travail du son associé aux arts plastiques à l'Université Paris I Sorbonne. Il dirige un séminaire sur les nouvelles technologies et la musique à l'Université Paris IV.
