Multiform composer multiplying the approaches of the musical, Sébastien Béranger explores between the writing of instrumental scores and the improvisation in live electronic. His music develops through mathematics and generates its material by conceptualizing the sound through graphic representation. He synthesizes, confronts and merges the idioms of spectral music, post-serialism and postmodal trends. Like a sculptor, he works on space as a metaphorical representation of different musical scales. First laureate of the Lili and Nadia Boulanger International Foundation in 2001-02, he won the Opera Prima Europa competition (Italy) and received awards and grants from the Electro-acoustic Composition Competition Música Viva (Portugal), the ZKM's International Competition for Electroacoustic Music (Germany) and the Académie des Beaux-Arts (Institut de France). His music has been performed by Christophe Desjardins, by the ensembles Accroche Note, Alter Ego, Aleph, Assonance, 2e2m, by the Axone Quartet and the Ensemble Intercontemporain, and has been programmed in the festivals Musica, Nuits Bleues, Nicephore Days, Gaudeamus Music Week...
