Composer, distinguished actor of musical research at IRCAM, founder and artistic director of the Ensemble Court-circuit, professor of composition at the CNSMD of Lyon... Philippe Hurel is a colorful figure.
In the words of journalist Arnaud Merlin, "Philippe Hurel writes scores that can be listened to through every pore of your skin, creating imaginary spaces that go beyond the time limits set by today's world. The composer plays with the codes of musical theatre and opera to recreate new playgrounds that make the legacies of the past bear fruit by constantly setting them in motion.”
