Christophe Guiraud uses old instruments such as the Hotteterre flute, the viola da gamba, or the viola bass, and combines them with electronics. Christophe Guiraud, born in Toulouse (south of France) in the mid-seventies, lives between Brussels and Paris. His early works come from alternative rock, free jazz, and harsh noise (he released two records on Angström Records as Tellemake). His more recent pieces mix the beauty of the polyphonies of Ars Nova (XIVè century) and noise. This nonesuch hybridization creates a music easily recognizable, and 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, Musiques Nouvelles, Fractales, Stephane Ginsburgh, and Tom Pauwels. Guiraud is regularly invited to festivals Sonar, Le printemps de Septembre, Loop, Nuits du Beau Tas et Ars musica. Performed by: Ictus Ensemble, Catherine Guesde & Nina Garcia, Ensemble Tresse, Ensemble La Grive, André-Marc Delcourt, Ensemble 21, Ryan/Mitchell/Zeitlin/Blunt Quartet, Christophe Guiraud, Ensemble/Collectif Bin°oculaire, and Ensemble Sturm und Klang.
