• Show Bio for Jacques Demierre
"The pianist and composer Jacques Demierre was born in 1954 in Geneva. His musical itinerary is varied: improvisation, jazz contemporary music. As a composer, he is mainly self-taught. He writes for concert use, for the stage and for modern dance. He has received commissions for both jazz and contemporary music. The recording by singer Magali Schwartz of three pieces inspired by her voice is testimony to a rare artistic experience. Je deviendrai Médée, Désir d'azur: musique de danse and Bleu are the results of an intense collaboration which began in 1985-86 and, via vocal and instrumental improvisation, gradually led to a kind of common vocal territory, a veritable research laboratory which produced compositions as well as new ideas for vocal experimentation."-Musiques Suisses (https://www.musiques-suisses.ch/en/Jacques-Demierre/BLEUDESIR-D%27-AZUR-MUSIQUE-DE-DANSE-JE-DEVIENDRAI-MEDEE/id/221)
