Yann Orlarey
Scientific Director, GRAME, Centre National de Creation Musicale


Yann Orlarey was born in 1959. While studying economics and computing at university, he also attended electroacoustic music classes at the conservatory in Saint-Etienne. He has been a member of Grame since 1983, and is currently a scientific director of this organization. His own research is concerned mainly with formal languages for musical composition, and real-time operating systems. He has created, alone or as part of a team, a number of musical systems and programs. His repertoire includes music on tape, interactive pieces, and instrumental pieces for soloists, small groups and orchestras. Most of his works bring in computing techniques, either for the performers’ instrumental playing situations or in the compositional process as such. He has co-written several pieces within the Grame framework, for example with the clarinettist and composer Jérôme Dorival. Works by him have been played in Europe (both eastern and western), the US and Canada; and China is shortly to be added to the list.
