Artist Biographies

"Loris Binot: Piano, Fender Rhodes, Moog, Processing

Art project carried out for over thirty years now. Course created with Jef Gilson (from 79 to 87), Michel Précastelli (from 82 to 85), Eric Watson (from 82 to 85), Bernard Maury (89 and 90) ....

Very eclectic formation: after beginnings with the accordion at the age of seven, abandons it around the age of fifteen and curiously, resumes it around the 92s around ... 40 years! In parallel, very attracted by the piano, classical studies with several teachers, and electronic keyboards. In the years 68 to 74, creation of a first rock group. At the time, the inspirations were Soft Machine Yes, Pink Floyd ... and later towards jazz rock with Weather Report, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis ..., then contemporary music to get to jazz.

Around 78, meeting with Jef Gilson. Worked the piano and harmony with him for several years at home in Paris, but also in internships he supervised in Nîmes. Then, for two or three years, worked with Michel Précastelli, François Couturier, Bernard Maury, Joy Kane ... and, very important meeting, from 86 to 88 with Eric Watson.

Since 1996, he has composed his music.

In 2000, selected for an order from the Region for the "JOURNEY OF MUSICIANS": the goal was:
• The renewal of harmony music in order to start a new millennium in a universe different from the previous one.
• The meeting of amateur musicians and a contemporary composer.
• The work of rehearsal and interpretation of this music.
• Presentation of this music in public.

For this creation, Loris Binot received a state commission in 2000 "Influences" "Illusion", musical writings for around thirty musicians.

Harold SINGER, Burton GREEN, François LINDEMAN, Maurice MAGNONI, Philippe PETRUCIANI, Thomas VANDEVENNE, Jean-Paul AUTIN, Jean-François CANAPE, Jean COHEN Jef SICARD, Patrick CHARBONNIER, Philippe HOURIET, Soizic LEBRAS, Elisabeth FLUNGER, Noel AKCHOTE, Lê Quan Ninh, Steve LACY,...

His work regularly brings him into experiences where artistic expressions meet and often intersect. Exploration of musical universes to discover all the arts: painting, literature, dance, sculpture, poetry, theater .... He multiplies the meetings during his career. This is how it is found alongside:

He is the designer in 2002 of the project "Aux arts etc" in collaboration with regional venues (Trinitaires de Metz, Jarny, Neufchâteau...). Origins: musicians, a Quintet combining jazz and modern music. Loris Binot, composer and leader of the "Loris Binot Quintet" makes a creative proposal towards a place and other artistic disciplines: Invest in a space, theatrical or not, by creating an evening mixing music, literature and visual arts. Since its creation, two writers, a plastic artist and a dancer have come to cross their worlds with that of the Quintet: Thierry Devaux, painter and plastic artist, Lucien Wasselin poet, Claudine Galea playwright and novelist, Yuko Kominami, dancer. Transverse and hybrid scene, "Aux arts Etc. "Plays on the rules of theatrical representation (text defined in advance, plastic scenography) and the laws of improvisation and random combination.

"Emilie krijelj: Accordionist aspired by electroacoustic materials, trains with Loris Binot, Maurizio Spiridigliozzi, Jean-Luc Cappozzo, Johannes Bauer and explores improvisation through impromptu meetings with musicians, dancers, actors, poets ... At the same pace, she ends his studies in plastic arts and scenography at the university in Metz in 2007 by writing a thesis: From sound object to sound space: interactions between sound and space among sound composers and artists (1948 -1984) .

She also immerses her ears in modular synths and starts taking sounds in the former Yugoslavia or on the edge of vinyl, all to throw herself into the arms of electroacoustics.
