A French composer born in May 29, 1977 in Reims.
Trained at the national regional conservatories of Rheims, Lille and at the Paris Conservatory, Sébastien Béranger studied with Emmanuel Nunes, Michaël Levinas, Yann Geslin, Luis Naón and Michèle Reverdy. The first laureate of the International Lili and Nadia Boulanger Foundation, he has distinguished himself in many European competitions and was chosen for the 3rd International Forum of Young Composers by the Aleph Ensemble. In charge of pedagogy and research for La Muse en Circuit, he organises appreciation activities for electro-acoustic music. The holder of a DEA degree in æsthetics and the sciences of art as well as a doctorate in musicology, he continues his research, through mathematics, on the musical semiotics, on the generation of material through the conceptualisation of sound by graphic representation. He synthesises, confronts, fuses the idioms of spectral music, postserialism and post-modal trends. Like a sculptor, he works on space as a metaphorical representation of the different musical parameters (pitch, duration, thickness of sound). His works include Maqâm (2001), Gymel (2003), Schizo à 120 (2003), Polynsert (2004), Archée for ensemble (2007).
