Meet France's greatest living composer
For composer Pascal Dusapin music is all about, ‘devenir une autre ' – metamorphosis - in its creation, playing and listening. Whereas in the 1980s the influence of the abstract sound world of his teacher Iannis Xenakis was still clearly to be heard, Dusapin's style gradually changed into broad, lilting musical phrases. Nowadays, because of his fascination for ethnic music, he composes oriental sounding melodies as metamorphoses of authentic music traditions.
