Martin Loridan graduated from the Paris Conservatoire (CNSMDP) where he obtained 4 “premier prix”. His catalog includes Concerti, works for Orchestra as well as Solo, Chamber and Vocal music.
His works investigate the role of gesture and its visual/acoustic impact on the performance. By fully integrating acoustic/physical/human phenomena such as breath, air, vibration and space, his musical language explores the borders between instrumental performance and human perception, questioning the very definition of sound – what characterizes it, but also what precedes and follows it.
His current projects include the composition of a cycle of chamber/solo pieces involving the use of Resonance/Amplification as well as a new work for Large Ensemble.
His works have been performed worldwide by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, the Arditti Quartet, the ensembles Klangforum Wien, l’Instant Donné, ECCE, Cepromusic, Mise-en, Lucilin, Soundinitiative, Quatuor Tana, Ensemble Xenia, the soloists Claude Delangle, Claudio Pasceri, Michael Duke, Michel Supera, Yumi Suehiro.
He has achieved distinction in several composition competitions such as the Rachmaninov Competition (Darmstadt), the Vareler Prize (Berlin), the Reinl-Prize (Vienna), Sorodha (Antwerp), Ecce competition (New York), Prix André Jolivet (Paris) and been selected for multiple international projects, residencies and festival such as Estovest Festival (Turin), Mise-En Music Festival (New York), International Forum of New Music Manuel Enriquez (Mexico City), Stony Brook Premieres (New York), IMPULS (Graz).
He currently pursues a PhD in composition (practice-led research) at the University of Leeds (UK). His research is funded by the prestigious "Leeds Doctoral Scholarship". His works are published at BabelScores.
