Jean Michel Rivet

Jean Michel Rivet trained as a composer in France within the Groupe de Musique Expérimentale in Bourges, and at the Conservatoire National de Région in Bordeaux. He is a member of the group l'OUvroir de Musique POtentielle, of the group of composers called Octandre, of the scientific and artistic council of the SCRIME (Studio of creation and research into computers and electroacoustic music, based at Bordeaux University I).

His recent works are performed at international festivals both in France and abroad. His creations are always inspired by objects which are steeped in symbolism. He strives to establish a link between the semantics of the sounds he chooses and the musical discourse. Their source is allowed to show through, and their richness and intrinsic beauty are preserved in their intact state.
