A French composer born November 11, 1970.
Céline Pierre studied electroacoustics at the Conservatory of Rheims as well as multimedia and performance with Marina Abramovic at ENSBA, the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris (1994).
A visual and aural composer, the creator of multimedia works, Pierre devises and sets up projects with the participation of the local populations, of mobile installations, environments, projections… Within the company CP&LP, she creates performances with an architect, a choreographer and an actress. Her works include La table des 4 vents, a participative installation, artistic and citizen project in an urban landscape with marginalised audiences; Chroniques de chantier, a participative installation with the inhabitants of an urban area under reconstruction in Romilly-sur-Seine (Aube); Ruckbau/Baubruck, a series of mobile installations on memorial sites along the Berlin Wall; Portraits, installation/projection/collective performance super 8; Skéné, a series of urban performances for five megaphones, five dancers and an actress.
Céline Pierre regularly collaborates with Césaré, the Centre National de Création Musicale in Rheims, where she develops work on film-essays and oratorio-videos. These films, blending images, texts and sound space, investigate the issue of welcoming strangers as a fundamental aspect of our democracies. After gathering images, sounds and texts from the camp at Calais, she developed Tragen.Hz, a work in progress broadcast in Europe and Central America and which exists in multiple forms: experimental music, short video-electroacoustic forms, mixed music and performances. Works within the scope of this project: TR.Hz #06, Nomansland for video-electroacoustics and viola, first performed by Elodie Gaudet in Barcelona (2018); TR.Hz #07, multiple entries for diffracted images, circle of speakers, live viola de gamba and ‘corps en trajectoire’ (moving bodies), premiered at the Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporaine of Strasburg as part of Bien Entendu (2019).
