Crane Lab II. Music by Pierre Boeswilwald, Alexandre Del Torchio and Yuko Katori.
Born in 1934. Having been trained in the visual art, the theatre and the electronics, he has been devoted to all forms of electroacoustic music creation since 1953. Pierre collaborated with most pioneers of sound poetry, radio art and concrete music, and has actively participated to the evolution of electroacoustic art for more than 60 years, not only in France, but also internationally.
Pierre elaborates and develops particular electroacoustic music, that is based on the notion of sonic plasticity, temporal events and theatricalization of sound, being independent from the traditional rules of the instrumental music composition. http://soundcloud.com/pierre-boeswillwald

After the graduation from Le Fresnoy, National Studio of Contemporary Arts in Tourcoing, he studied acousmatic composition with Régis Renouard-Larivière and at the CRD Pantin under the direction of Marco Marini and Jonathan Prager.
