DAVID CHRISTOFFEL

Rendezvous: La voix de Foucault – Archives sonores en écoute, June 21

David Christoffel is a poet, composer, and musicologist. His radio creations look back at the great musical repertoire such as Norma, affaire criminelle (France Culture, 2010), the series Meurtre au conservatoire (France Musique, 2012) or the Wesendonck-Hörspieler (Espace-2, 2013). Christoffel is also involved in radio creations via musical mediation: since 2014, he has carried out experiments with students from the musical culture class at the Paris conservatory (Cnsmdp), he produced Le Téléphone Arabe (operatic intrigues retold by middle-school students) on the Opéra de Paris website and in 2015 he will lead La Tribune at the Philharmonie de Paris.

A selection of his radio creations is available on CD: he published the albums Oecumétrucs (L’Artalect, 2007), and Radio Toutlemonde vol. 1 and 2 (SuperMoyen, 2010 et 2014). He is interested in changes that poetry can impose on music and dedicated his musicology thesis (in 2011 at the Ehess) on oral notes on Satie’s scores (published in 2015 by MF-Editions). As a poet, he has published the works Littéralicismes (L’Attente, 2010) and Argus du cannibalisme (Publie.net, 2011).
