Denis Dufour

Profile:
Denis Dufour (1953, France) is renowned as a composer in the field of instrumental as well as electronic creation for concert with more than a 180 works to his credit. As one of the pioneers of the 'morphological' and expressive approach to sonic writing, his works employ a wide spectrum of parameters in all sonic dimensions, contributing to the emergence of a genre that decisively connects all the arts with his interdisciplinary approach to composition and pedagogy. He himself studied the classics at the CRR in Lyon and the Paris Conservatoire.
Despite his large compositional output, from the late 70's, he was a teacher at the Paris Boulogne-Billancourt (PSPBB) higher arts education centre, the Regional Conservatories of Paris, Perpignan and Lyon and the Paris Conservatoire (CNSMDP), researcher (including GRM until 2000), lecturer, a host for many courses, workshops and master classes in France and abroad (particularly in Japan and Italy), an organizer and artistic director of several events dedicated to contemporary creation (the series Acore in Lyon, Syntax in Perpignan, Musiques à Réaction in Paris, Futura Festival in Drôme). He is at the origin of several structures, collectives and instrumental ensembles that continue to irrigate the musical life in France and worldwide (Motus, Futura, Syntax, TM+, Les Temps modernes…).
