• Show Bio for Michele Bokanowski
"Michèle Bokanowski (August 9, 1943, Cannes, France) is a French Paris-based electroacoustic music composer.
After a classical education in harmony, she met Michel Puig, a student of René Leibowitz, who taught her composition and analysis according to Schönbergian principles. In September 1970, she began a two year course at the "Service de la recherche de l'ORTF" (ORTF Research Department) under the direction of Pierre Schaeffer. At the same time, she participated in a sound synthesis research group, studied computer music at the Faculté de Vincennes as well as electronic music with Eliane Radigue.
Between 1972 and 1984, she composed essentially for the concert ["Korè" for one pianist, "Trois chambres d'inquiétude", "Tabou"], and for film [mostly for Patrick Bokanowski]. Since 1985, she has also composed for television, theatre [with Catherine Dasté], and for dance [with choreographers Hideyuki Yano, Marceline Lartigue and Bernardo Montet]."-Discogs (https://www.discogs.com/artist/12391-Mich%C3%A8le-Bokanowski)

sample the album:
"Michele Bokanowski's art is one of densities, much like the density of a given color, a given depth. Her sound textures are, indeed, profound, both in the space occupied by their frequencies and the sharp temporal trail they leave behind. Here lies the composer's immense talent that finds the right development for each sound, letting it blossom before altering it, adapting the musical structure to let the sounds 'be', even if it sometimes means returning to the most basic form, such as a loop. This is a sign of great honesty and artistic sensitivity; able to stand back and let the music become music. It is the most radical, the most accurate gesture of composition. The two pieces on this record, dissociated in time, both in their approach and destination, nevertheless reflect, each in its own way, Michele Bokanowski's highly singular and insightful musical intuition." -Francois Bonnet, Paris, 2020.
