Sébastien Roux

Composer Sébastien Roux (born 1977) writes electronic music, and presents it in diverse formats, from CD's and records, to public guided listening sessions using speaker systems, concerts with projection of graphical scores, sound installations, sound walks, site specific performances, and radio pieces. Sébastien Roux imagines new listening situations. He uses algorithms, games, movement, spatialisation, and diagrams to articulate two complementary notions: the perception of form and the forms of perception. In 2011 he began to develop an approach focused on principles of translation, analyzing the structures of preexisting art works (visual, musical, literary) and transposing them into scores for new works (radiophonic or electroacoustic taped music). He regularly collaborates with Célia Houdard (writer), Olivier Vadrot (designer), DD Dorvilliers and Sylvain Prunenec (choreographers). He has a multidisciplinary master's degree in sciences and technologies for music from IRCAM.
