Alexis Degrenier

BIO

Alexis Degrenier lives and works near Clermont-Ferrand.

After studying classical percussion and composition, he decided to follow paths as vast as they are remote, invoking the music of G. Ligeti, the metric systems of the Maqam and Middle Eastern music, as well as the pulsations of everyday mechanics, and the music of Central France through the study of the oblique listening of sound spaces.

He draws his inspiration from literature or philosophy to extract what he wishes to transform; a concept into affect.

Thus he learns as much from oral traditions as from the written music in his instrumental practice and decides to integrate these forms in his solo for percussion and objects ‘Mouvements fantômes, membres miroirs’, where time is transformed into periods of time to become an (in)exhausted pulse, a solo shifting according to spaces and possibilities.

Today he collaborates with La Tène, La Nòvia‘s “In C” project, and has performed with the group Tanz Mein Herz, the ensemble Minisym, l’insub. Meta Orchestra, the percussion trio Cerbère, co-composes OutreNoir (with Golem Mécanique) and produces the soundtrack for Rose Lowder‘s films, while composing the music for the dance piece “A l’Ouest” by the choreographer Olivia Grandville.

Since 2022, he is a lecturer in music at the ESACM (Art School of Clermont-Ferrand-FR).

His debut album ‘La mort aura tes yeux’ is announced on Standard In-Fi and Murailles Music.

Instrumentarium: solo percussion and drone box, mechanical instruments, amplified objects, skins, resonators, stones, wood, drone box, friction, strokes, bodies, hands, circles and metronomes.

Co-production : Murailles Music, Sonic Protest
