Philippe
Hersant

Vita

For Philippe Hersant it is always a question of memory: recent memory, distant memory, veiled, haunted, almost obsessional; all the more idiosyncratic because it's not symptomatic of a "post" or "neo" something or other. For him, composition is sculpted from sonic images, mental images or even "musical" ones in the shape of quotations. He would readily ascribe a semantic value to his musical ideas, either because they function with a text or in a cinematic or theatrical context. Wherever his compositions co-exist in a symbiotic relation with other art forms, Philippe Hersant harnesses an evocative power producing, purely and simply...music. Wikipedia : Philippe Hersant
