Gilles
Maugenest

Bio

French composer, born 1963. Studied piano, composition and musicology in Aix-en-Provence. Received his first major commission , "Quatre-vingt-neuf pour chœur et orchestre" in 1989 which quickly found its place in the French contemporary music repertoire, performed notably at  the Vélodrome in Marseille and at the Palais des Papes in Avignon. Words and music are essential to this composer - and numbers apparently : "Cent mille milliards de poèmes", homage both to the great Queneau and to the mechanics of musical creation, "la machine à chansons".Now a prominent composer for film and television, his pieces for Cézame "Histoires Simples" (CEZ 4044) are amongst the most popular on the catalogue.
