The early works of Christophe Guiraud (born in Toulouse, lives and works in Brussels and Paris) come from alternative rock, free jazz and harsh noise (Tellemake, 2 records on Angström Records). His more recent pieces mixed the beauty of the polyphonies of Ars Nova (14th century) and noise. This nonesuch hybridation creates a music easily recognizable, at the same time harmonious and deeply intense. Christophe Guiraud composes for a few important ensembles and performers like Ictus, Ensemble 21, Sturm und Klang, Kwartludium, Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles
, Fractales, Stephane Ginsburgh, Tom Pauwels. Regularly invited at festivals Sonar, Le Printemps de Septembre, Loop, Nuits du Beau Tas et Ars musica.
