  • Jean-Noël von der Weid


(b Paris, Aug 14, 1943). French composer. She had piano lessons when very young, then entered the Paris Conservatoire. In Olivier Messiaen’s class, she was awarded first prize for analysis (1964) and composition (1970), and in Georges Hugon’s class, first prize for harmony. She participated in courses given by Pierre Boulez, Bruno Maderna, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Henri Pousseur in Basle, Darmstadt and Cologne (1965–6), and received her first grounding in electroacoustic music with Jean-Étienne Marie at the Schola Cantorum in Paris (1968–9). The human voice in all its variety and a fascination for spirals, mirrors, colour spectra and metamorphoses are elements that have played a part in influencing the structure of her works, in play with time in slow motion.
