A French composer born April 12, 1946 in Pessac, who died July 18, 2020.
After studying singing and the classical guitar David Jisse began a career as an author-composer-performer, creating, with Dominique Marge, the duet ‘David and Dominique’. In 1973 he met Luc Ferrari, discovered electroacoustic music composition and trained in studio work, in experimental music and in radiophonic art.
He has composed for the stage, notably for the director Régis Santon, yet also for television and the cinema, being a close collaborator of directors such as Bernard Dartigues, Gérard Maro, Youri and Liliane de Kermadec. Intimately aware of the sound world about us, he also makes a point of sharing his unusual aural perception of our environment, notably in concerts with headphones.
As a radio producer (1983-2014) he worked for France Culture (Un poco agitato, Alla Breve), France Musique (Le Grand Bécarre, Électromania with Christian Zanési and Christophe Bourseiller) and co-produced Électrain de nuit with François Bonnet. The director of the Centre National de Création Musicale ‘La muse en circuit’ (1998-2013), he founded the festival ‘Extension’, organised the pedagogical sector, was particularly interested in transmission and awareness with regard to young audiences, and set up many first performances with young performers.
The founder of the network Futurs-composés Île-de-France, administrator for the Profedim (a professional union of producers, festivals, ensembles, independent music organisers), Jisse has been president of the Cdmc (2017-2020).
