Nicolas Marty

about the author

Nicolas Marty is a doctoral student in musicology at the University of Paris La Sorbonne, where he studies the listening of acousmatic musics. After finishing his studies in Computer Music at the Conservatory of Bordeaux in 2010, he is currently attending Jean-Louis Agobet’s classes on instrumental composition and Christophe Havel’s courses in electroacoustic composition. He is lecturer in computer music at the Université Bordeaux Montaigne, he edited with François Delalande issue 8 of the journal Musimédiane (‘Electroacoustic music’) and organized the session euroMAC2014 “Listening to Electroacoustic Music through Analysis”, of which he edited the proceedings (Musiques électroacoustiques. Analyses – Ecoutes. Sampzon: Delatour 2015). His compositional aesthetics rests on a form of extended and contemplative temporality. The pulsed or striated element is relegated to the background, in favor of a smooth, yet punctually articulated, deployment of space. The human element is set aside as much as possible to priviledge other forms of existence.
