• Show Bio for Lionel Marchetti
"Lionel Marchetti is a composer of concrete music. First self-taught, he then explores the repertoire of concrete music, as acousmatic art, with the composer Xavier Garcia 1 from 1989 at COREAM (Collective for electroacoustic research and musical action) in Fontaine ( Isère ). He then composed in the studios of the Musical Research Group in Paris, of the Living Music Group of Lyon, of La Muse en circuit in Alfortville, of Césaré in Reims, of Gmem inNational center for musical creation in Marseille, at the training center for intervening musicians (CFMI) in Lyon and in his personal studio. At the same time, Lionel Marchetti pursues a work of poetic writing 2, 3, as well as a theoretical approach to concrete music and the art of the loudspeaker, as a practicing artist of the genre.
His book La musique concrète by Michel Chion 4 remains the most noticed - as well as his essay Speaker, voice and mirror... - technical essay in the form of a letter 5.
Its catalog is currently rich with more than a hundred concrete works.
Since 1990, he has been a lecturer in the art of concrete music and electroacoustic techniques at CFMI Lyon at the University of Lyon 2 (see BNF authority notice)."-Wikipedia (Translated by Google) (https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lionel_Marchetti)

sample the album:
""I wonder if my fascination for clouds (without being an obsession) may have risen at the end of the '80s as, whilst composing 'Micro-climat', I would regularly wander between the Vercors mountains and the high plateaus of the Monts du Forez discovering, through my eyes, body, breath, active observation and walk, that natural forms when constantly changing and yet swollen with a unity of matter (in this instance, water) open one up to a deep, fundamental breath and a clear field for the mind. The sky and its forces: our ally. A model for a natural music which, although fixed, as in musique concrete (a rule of the genre), moreover on a recording tape, will remain charged with such a poetic quality that (isn't it its role or rather its reality?) it will ensure a perpetual renewal for our senses, so as to reach another idea of the world, far more open and richer than what we could have imagined."-Lionel Marchetti, 2011
