On the occasion of the premiere of Elliptiques, commissioned by the Ensemble Intercontemporain, this encounter with François Rossé seeks to give an overall view of his creative approach.

It is not easy to place François Rossé within the pre-packaged aesthetic categories of so-called ‘contemporary’ music. Confronted by the various current forms of artistic and social stratification, he has opted for what he calls a ‘nomad attitude’: fleeing from fixity, distrusting any monolithic aesthetic. He prefers to take the risk of being incorrectly identified in the field of contemporary musical creation, rather than cut himself off from social reality.
