*Lionel Marchetti* is an electroacoustic improviser and musique concr√®te¬†composer. Initially self-taught, Marchetti studied with Xavier Garcia in¬†Grenoble. A scholar, he later worked at the CFMI (Lyon) and INA-GRM studios¬†(Paris), and published a book on composer Michel Chion. In the mid-1990s¬†Marchetti was one of a handful of artists who took electroacoustic music¬†out of the academic studio and into the realm of free improvisation, using¬†a live set-up with microphones, small speakers, tape recorders and radio.
As an improviser he performs in his long-standing duo with J√©r√īme¬†Noetinger, in the audio-visual project Le Cube, with influential collective¬†Archipel, and with dancer Y√īko Higashi. In his studio work he incorporates¬†sound collage and electroacoustic composition, although the level of poetry¬†and refusal of genre boundaries in his music puts him closer to Kristoff K.¬†Roll and Luc Ferrari than Pierre Henry or Bernard Parmegiani.echopolite.com
