Henry Torgue

Real Name:
Henri Torgue
Profile:
Henri Torgue is a classically trained concert pianist based in Grenoble, France.
In the 1970's, under the name Henry Skoff-Torgue, he recorded some instrumental albums based around the organ in a contemporary new-music setting. His debut LP "Souvenirs Des Cités Crépusculaires" from 1976 was a reflective and restrained album with a vaguely Terry Riley feel. It would seem that he wasn't satisfied with it however, and completely re-recorded the album three years later, along with "Compartiment Fuchsia" - both albums featuring organ and synthesizer mixing classical and prog elements into a unique new style.
After the founding of the Emile Dubois Group in 1979, he reverted to using Henry Torgue or just his surname Torgue co-billing his choreographer Serge Houppin, and developed a completely different musical language again, composing and performing music for Jean-Claude Gallotta’s dance, film and video creations, and other luminaries of dance and theatre: Carolyn Carlson and Philippe Genty.
