A French composer born March 12, 1938 in Neuchâtel (Switzerland).
Born into a highly musical family, Tona Scherchen, known as Ti-tigre, started her musical apprenticeship at a very early age. She pursued it for ten years in China, at the Peking and Shanghai conservatories, before becoming a pupil of Hans Werner Henze in Salzburg, of Olivier Messiaen in Paris and of György Ligeti in Vienna. Gaining, notably, a First Prize from the Paris Conservatory (1964) as well as a First Prize in the Composition Competition of the Gaudeamus Foundation (1967), she brings together the European avant-garde idioms of the 1960s and 1970s in a personal language.

A flautist by training, Patrice Fouillaud studied at the Limoges Conservatory. He then began a career as an orchestral musician and music education teacher before following a composition course at the Accademia Chigiana in Sienna with Franco Donatoni (1979).

A British composer born December 19, 1967 in London.
A violinist by training, Rebecca Saunders studied composition with Wolfgang Rihm at the Musikhochschule of Karlsruhe and at Edinburgh University.
She explores tone-colours, breath sounds, breathing, and studies the relationship of instrumentalists with sounds in space. She frequently makes use of spatialisation processes (Chroma for ensemble and sound objets, 2003; Stirrings Still I for five players, 2006; Stasis for 16 soloists, first performed by the ensemble MusikFabrik, 2011). Silence is another fundamental element in her concept of music: she makes it audible, composes with and around it.

She steeped herself in Afro-American and minimalist music, and met Fred Hopkins, Leroy Jenkins, Butch Morris and John Cage. She is also a laureate of the Villa Medici ‘fuori-i-muri’ (1981), the DAAD of Berlin (1990) and the Villa Kujoyama of Kyoto (1998).
