Michele Bokanowski

Passionate about music from her early teens, it was only relatively late, at the age of 22, that she decided to study composition. Reading Pierre Schaeffer’s “À la recherche d’une musique concrete” was a determining factor. After a classical training in harmony, she met Michel Puig, a pupil of René Leibowitz, who taught her composition and analysis based on Schönberg’s treatise. In September 1970, she began a two-year internship at the ORTF Research Department under Pierre Schaeffer.

Between 1973 and 1975, she took part in a research group on sound synthesis, studied computer music at the Faculté de Vincennes and electronic music with Éliane Radigue. She composes mainly for concerts and the cinema as for Patrick Bokanowski’s short films and the feature film “L’Ange”. She has also composed for television, theatre and dance.
