This workshop is a unique opportunity to explore the ideas, history and forward trajectories of musique concrete, led by composer, writer, theoretician and Director of INA GRM, Francois J. Bonnet (aka Kassel Jaeger ).

Drawing on the heritage of musique concrete and acousmatic music, this course aims to revise the conceptual foundations that traditionally underpin musical thinking and to take a more experiential approach to composition. Drawing on an original body of theory as well as tangible examples, the aim of the session is to open up new paths of creation, enabling each participant to articulate their relationship to musical creation more clearly, to redefine the issues at stake and to find new creative routes to explore.

The first two classes will take the form of lectures, while the next two will be more devoted to discussion and the exploration of each person's particular challenges. Finally, the last session will be a synthesis dedicated to formalising the stakes specific to each of the participants.

Francois J. Bonnet, aka Kassel Jaeger, is a Franco-Swiss composer and electroacoustic musician based in Paris. In addition to being the Director of INA GRM (Institut national de l'audiovisuel / Groupe de Recherches Musicales - the latter being one of the birthplaces of electroacoustic experimentation in the late 1950's), Francois is also a writer and theoretician: his books "The Order of Sounds: A Sonorous Archipelago", "The Infra-World", and "After Death" are published in English by Urbanomic. He is also the author of the manifesto "The Music to Come", published by Shelter Press in 2020, and the co-editor of the "SPECTRES" series of publications, a joint project of INA GRM and Shelter Press. As a musician, Bonnet often works under the project name Kassel Jaeger. He has collaborated with artists such as Oren Ambarchi, Giuseppe Ielasi, Stephan Mathieu, Stephen O'Malley, Jim O'Rourke, Akira Rabelais, James Rushford or Gisèle Vienne. Kassel Jaeger's works are a complex balance between concrete experimentalism, ambient noise, and electroacoustic improvisation. He has released several albums on various labels such as Shelter Press, Black Truffle, Editions Mego, Senufo Editions, etc. While his own music has been played in renowned venues and festivals all over the world, Francois has been working closely with groundbreaking composer Eliane Radigue and has been regularly performing her electronic music in concert.
