Composer, musician

Compositeur, guitariste, Emmanuel Mondolfo étudie les musiques actuelles puis la composition électroacoustique au conservatoire de Toulouse où il suit la classe de Bertrand Dubedout. Il joue et écrit de la musique pour Ernest Barbery (chansons hybride) et Gravity (pop expérimentale) qu’il co-fonde avec Serge Faubert. Actif sur la scène des musiques improvisées, il participe à de nombreuses formations comme le CrUmd (groupe de recherche constitué de musiciens improvisateurs et de danseurs), le fil (grand orchestre), la rallonge (improvisation sur des courts métrages), ou encore avec Denis Badault. Il collabore fréquemment avec l’artiste numérique Arnaud Courcelle avec qui il crée des dispositifs sonores interactifs pour des installations numériques (paysages, ID) et accompagne des performances. Il compose la musique interactive pour les spectacles « Errance » et « Narcissus Reflected » de la compagnie K. Danse. Il développe une écriture musicale intégrant des interactions, avec un public ou des performeurs, créant ainsi des compositions complexes avec de multiples chemins possibles en fonction des choix des utilisateurs. Bien que multipliant les expériences (composition pour oeuvres chorégraphiques, musique acousmatique, improvisation libre, oeuvre multimédia, …) l’unité de ses travaux se trouve dans sa démarche de questionnement sur la perception de l’auditeur.

Each new production of K. Danse is an opportunity to deepen an already established collaboration and also a chance to meet with new artists.

Other partners from the past and recent times will be regurarly added in this virtual exhibit-catalog.
