About author : CHOUVEL Jean-Marc


While he was learning composition with the most important musicians of the twentieth century, Jean-Marc Chouvel developed a theoretical  approach that lead him to reconsider the main notions of music writing.

Taking up the contribution of phenomenology and cognitive sciences, his work on temporal forms has been published in two books: Esquisses pour une pensée musicale and Analyse musicale, sémiologie et cognition des formes temporelles.

He also proposed a complete theory of the harmonic phenomena allowing among other things to explore the broad universe of micro-intervals. Since his studies in Spain with Francisco Guerrero, he has written more than thirty pieces for instruments and electroacoustic.

He participated in founding the instrumental ensemble l’Instant donné as well as the reviews Filigrane and Musimediane.
