A French composer born July 29, 1958 in Saint-Nazaire.
Ivane Bellocq studied the flute with Roger Bourdin, analysis with Max Deutsch and composition with Olivier Greif.
An international performer, she plays and records many works of both the past and the present, notably Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, Debussy, Olivier Greif, Sofia Goubaidoulina, Suzanne Giraud, Patrice Sciortino and Sophie Lacaze.
As a composer she has been invited to numerous residences in the Île de France, in Mayenne and with festivals or ensembles (the chamber choir Les Temperamens Variations, Rencontres Musicales de Haute-Provence, des Hautes-Vosges…).
Bellocq undertakes research into sound and tone-colour. She has constructed a language in the service of expressivity, with refinement in instrumental writing and she practises pluridisciplinarity with poetry, painting, sculpture and dance.
She composes for all combinations, from music for solo instrument to orchestra: Hallucination for ensemble, premiered at the festival Traverses of Chambéry (1992); Der gelbe Klang first performed by the ensemble Erwartung in 1999; Estrans, commissioned by Radio France for the ensemble Alternance (2001); Le tombeau d’Olivier Greif for piano, violin, alto and cello, commissioned by the Théâtre du Châtelet (2001); Tectonique des rêves, first performed at the Maison de Radio France by the violinist Fanny Clamagirand and the pianist Nicolas Bringuier in 2006; Palmes for viola d’amore, first performed by Pierre-Henri Xuereb in 2009; Paysage avec ruisseau for flute and string orchestra (2017). She has also received many commissions from the Paris Conservatory and has composed numerous pedagogical works with a musical vocabulary that is both entertaining and accessible.
Ivane Bellocq is the director of a collection for Delatour and a collaborator on the periodical Traversières. She has also headed the Saint Cloud Conservatory and teaches the flute and chamber music at the Regional Conservatory and the École Normale of Paris.
