Born Nice, France 1947. Lives and works in Paris. Studied classical clarinet and composition, often participating in his father's "Structures Sonores" (Crystal Beschet). Multi-instrumentalist, composer, and arranger, he co-founded the iconic prog-rock band "Magma" in the late sixties. In the seventies he began composing prolifically for television and commercials. He is a leading exponent of "Jewish swing", coming back to his roots, as he says, like coming across a forgotten house from one's childhood. He composed the music for the films of Falkenau, based on Sam Fuller's footage of the liberation of the concentration camps.
