A French composer born September 30, 1964.
After studying the piano and at the same time training to be an opera singer, Lucie Prod’homme studied electroacoustic composition with Pascal Gobin at the Marseilles Conservatory, where she won a prize in 1997. She also followed a university course in the “conception and realisation of cultural projects” at the faculty of Aix-Marseille. Prod’homme divides her time between teaching and composition.
Associating composition and research, she was a member of the MIM (Music et Informatique de Marseille) from 1996 to 2008, a laboratory where she worked as head of the pedagogical department. She taught electroacoustic composition in the class she founded at the Cité de la Musique in Marseilles (2002-2014) and then at the Perpignan Conservatory (electroacoustic and instrumental composition).
Passionately fond of crossovers with other arts, Prod’homme often collaborates with plastic artistes, video artistes, painters, sculptors, writers, dancers (music for the show 7 jours d’orage with choreography by Bénédicte Raffin, 1998; Le piano mangeur de crayon a encore frappé! to a text and illustrations by Gérard Franquin, premiered during the broadcast Electrain de nuit on France Musiques in 2008).
Her catalogue includes acousmatic works (Tout plein de vide, commissioned by Ina-GRM, first performed at the Auditorium Saint-Germain in Paris at a Multiphonies concert, 2011), mixed works (Chaperon express for two actors and audio support, premiered by Donatienne Michel-Dansac and Paul-Alexandre Dubois at the festival Présences 2017) and instrumental compositions (Tant d’espaces… for piccolo, premiered by Jean-Luc Beaumadier at the Cité de la Musique in Marseilles, 2005). Her output includes concert works, radiophonic pieces (Les Quissons, 2009), dance music, music for young performers (À l’attaque ! for harpsichord and audio support, 2016) and sound installations (Aléa, commissioned by the French State and Musiques Inventives d'Annecy, first performance at the festival Musiques Inventives d'Annecy, 2004). Lucie Prod’homme is interested in silence within music, in the way it is composed and in controlling the energy of sound or silence (cycles of acousmatic pieces Leçon du silence and Leçon du son).
As a performer, ‘cant’actrice’ (singer/actress) working on gesture and energy, she forms with the percussionist Richard Arapian the Lulu Berlue Duo.
