Pierre Mariétan

Real Name:
Pierre Mariétan
Pierre Mariétan is a Swiss composer, born 23rd of September, 1935, in Monthey. Mariétan's musical education included studying with Pierre Boulez, Bernd Alois Zimmermann, Gottfried Michael Koenig, Henri Pousseur, and Karlheinz Stockhausen, and as a result his earliest works are demonstrably serialist in nature. During the 1960s, however, he began creating outline sketches for improvisation, and in the early 1970s, explored environmental sound and the problem of noise pollution.

In 1966, he founded the Groupe d'Etude et Réalisation Musicales (GERM), and the Laboratoire Acoustique et Musique Urbaine de l'Ecole d'Architecture de Paris La Villette in 1979 (which he directed until 1990). Mariétan taught at the University of Paris (I et VIII) from 1969 to 1988; at the Ecole d'Architecture de Paris la Villette in 1993; and was Director of the Conservatoire de Garges (Région parisienne) from 1972–77.
