Presentation "Le Fil de l'Archet"
Welcome to this presentation of my career!
Having started music very early, I grew up with the cello, performed many concerts, played with great musicians, orchestras under the direction of great conductors.
It is a true vocation that has been fortunate enough to be heard and nurtured: the attention of my family has given me a favorable context and encouraged me to practice very regularly.
Having become a cellist for many years, passionate about musical language, interpretation, sharing of music, discovering lots of traditional and world music, and of all times.

I like ensemble music, I like the 'brass' (I practiced the trombone and learn to sound the hunting horn), I like the percussions, in particular digital (those which one plays with his fingers, like the Zarb from Iran).
Over time, my preference has become anchored in the cultural heritage of our elders, wondering how to preserve this heritage valiantly shaken up in the 20th century, to make it a lasting and useful know-how, always current and moving for people. next generations.
While in the 1980s we were free to think and activate on our own and without centralized influences, in 2020 we are constantly observed in our actions and preferences, and constantly influenced by our media.
Self-learning and free time have become scarce, we are drowning in the supply of consumption (entertainment), and yet, cannot even enjoy it properly, in depth.
We have absolutely cut ourselves off from our unity of place, time and action, and more than ever removed from our own neighbors, for example.
In this context, learning a manual trade means educating your own senses, learning to perceive more accurately and know yourself better. The key is the prospect of acting with deep awareness and respect towards oneself and others, and better directing our lives.
Let us come back to ourselves, take action to rediscover time, human expression, away from all that observes us and tries to direct us.
This is the meaning of my independent work and my artistic achievements.
