François Richomme
Composer / Sound Designer





The very essence of most of my compositions is the writing of the movements of sounds to create a choreographed musical space. This can only be presented by using multichannel audio sent to many speakers surrounding the audience. Now, if a painting which fundamental theme is the exploration of colors is scanned to black and white, the main artistic component literally vanishes. That's what would happen with most of my music if I actually downmixed it to stereo for web presentation.

Live performances are the only way to experience these spatial compositions, them being played on the specific sound system for which they were originally created. Thus, I only present on this website the tiny part of my work which was initially intended for a stereo system such as the video trailers below, a glimpse of my artistic world...
