Charbonnier, Janinelocked

  • Françoise Andrieux


(b Paris, June 8, 1926). French composer and pianist. After studying the piano at the Paris Conservatoire, she committed herself initially to teaching and performing. Her first compositions date from the 1960s and show the influence of her collaboration with Pierre Barbaud and his Groupe de Musique Algorithmique in Paris. Her systematized compositional method, based on mathematical principles, governs not only the form of her works (for example in Générateur I et II and Raison inverse) but also their basic musical materials (Galiens, Réseaux aériens, Hommage à Vera Molnar). Rhythm and timbre are the essential elements of the resulting discourse.
