Loïc Guénin is a French composer known for his unique soundscapes and graphical scores. Hovering between experimental rock noise with contemporary aesthetics and an electro-acoustic sound, Loïc Guénin’s music refuses to adhere to a specific category. His approach to sound and listening places him at the border between music and contemporary art.
As part of France-Atlanta 2019, Loïc Guénin will present his work and approach to Georgia Tech music students. He will also work with musicians from a Georgia Tech student jazz combo as they prepare for a performance of one of Guénin’s graphical scores. The performance will be held at Georgia Tech on November 20.
LECTURE & DEMONSTRATION WITH GEORGIA TECH STUDENTS: OCTOBER 17, 3:00 P.M. – 5:00 P.M.
