New educational content with Denis Bioteau:


  • Workshop - Music Repair


The aim of this workshop is for each intern to find answers to the questions he has to improve his musical writings, or even to begin and advance them.

The demand can be on a problem of composition, harmony, orchestration, arrangement, polyrhythm, instrumentation, styles, editorial readability etc...

This workshop makes it possible to immediately have targeted answers: we have already experienced that a direct and satisfying outcome made us even more eager to continue to learn and improve!


  • Course-Analysis of the musical work MODE HALLES


Denis Bioteau, composer of this piece written for big band with strings consort and synthesizer violin, says that he wanted to concretize 25 years of reflections on the composition by creating a mix of styles and dynamics, between the classical and popular music.

He revisits the different trends of 20th century musical writing, associated with the energy of groove & improvisation of modern contemporary music.
