Brice Catherin has been selected for the 2015 round of Moving Classics residencies to work with the Pinquins in Oslo. As a performer and improviser himself, Brice has experience working with the crossing of different art forms and has a strong expression of thought and ideas in his approach to the projects literature theme. Audience participation will be central during development of the new composition with audiences participating in the work both prior and during the concert.
After his diploma of composition with Michael Jarrell in 2006, Brice Catherin willingly stepped away from the contemporary music institutions in order to develop very freely as a multi-instrumental cellist, improviser, composer and art performer. His activities feed into each another and beyond his multidisciplinary shows and improvised concerts – Brice has continued composing and premiering new work. Alongside these formally unusual premieres, Brice composes using traditional forms.His work has been premiered in Switzerland (festival akouphène, Haute Ecole de Musique de Lausanne, Théâtre du Grütli, Théâtre de l’Usine, etc.) and performed in Belgium, Germany, France, Japan, Cyprus and Canada. Some of his work is are available on labels (la Cafetière, France; Drone Sweet Drone, France) and netlabels (Pan Y Rosas, USA ; Absence of Wax, USA).
