TROLLET Vincent

A member of the Académie de France in Madrid, Casa de Velázquez, from 2013 to 2014, selected by the Institut Français du Maroc for an artistic residency in Fez in 2015, winner of the Institut Français’ Hors-les-murs residency program in creative music in 2016, Vincent Trollet will be in residence at the Institut Français in Palermo, Italy, in 2023. His catalog ranges from instrumental and vocal music to the more experimental forms of mixed and electroacoustic music. Vincent Trollet pays close attention to the sound of speech and the experience of time. He explores sound as a living being, using a variety of vocal, instrumental, gestural and scenic expedients. Not formally attached to any dominant aesthetic, he insists that his music explores frontiers through the experience that arises
and confrontation with texts. This has naturally led him to take an interest in the performing arts, the voice and opera. His latest works include Arianna, presented at the Opéra de Massy, Oblique 2 – Trouble langage, the second part of a transdisciplinary triptych combining poetry, contemporary mime and creative music, and the Lotophages cycle for voice and piano, based on poems by Greek poet Yorgos Alisanoglou.

Biography

Artist member of the Académie de France in Madrid, Casa de Velazquez, from 2013 to 2014, selected by the Institut Français du Maroc for an artistic residency in 2015 in Fez, laureate 2016 of the Institut Français Hors-les-murs residency program in creative music.

Vincent Trollet pays close attention to the sound of speech and the experience of time. He explores sound as a living being, using a variety of vocal, instrumental, gestural and scenic expedients. Not formally attached to a dominant aesthetic of contemporary music, he insists that his music explores frontiers through the experience that arises from the relationship and confrontation with theater, text and virtual reality.

Born in Pau in 1978, he began by studying the piano, before devoting himself to composition. He studied composition with Edith Canat de Chizy at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional de Paris, and obtained an advanced diploma in Musical Acoustics at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris, which gave him in-depth knowledge of acoustics and technological environments. He then chose to pursue his studies at the Haute Ecole de Musique de Genève, where he obtained a Master’s degree in Composition and Music Theory. His main teachers were Michael Jarrell (composition), Luis Naon (electroacoustic music) and Eric Daubresse (computer music).

2010/2011 represents a turning point. He was admitted to the Computer Music program at IRCAM in Paris, where he received intensive training in computer music. A new direction takes shape, leading him to explore experimental forms. It was also the moment when he met other composers of his generation, who a few months later founded a collective from which a contemporary music ensemble, Ensemble Regards, was born.

From 2016, he collaborates with Vahram Zaryan, performer and mime, for the creation of a tryptic entitled Oblique. This theme is enriched with new meanings as the creations progress, in which several artistic practices are present: mime, circus arts, music and text. In 2019, he wrote the music for Arianna, a show in which three musicians, a dancer and an actor seek to capture the borderline experience of two women, the mythological Arianna and Valentina Terechkova, the first female cosmonaut to go into space.

In 2020, he co-founded the Pronaos collective. For the first project, Laboratoire Arianna, materials from space research served as a starting point for sharing artistic practices and developing a journey of eight sound and visual installations.

In 2023, he will be invited by the Institut Français de Palerme for an artistic residency in the city.
