  PORTFOLIO TO CATCH



ABOUT 





Léo Collin studied applied arts in Marseille and Besançon, classical music in Lyon and electro-acoustic music composition in Geneva, Freiburg im Breisgau and Zurich with Michael Jarrell, Brice Pauset and Isabel Mundry. He stays in Zurich, next to the mountains.
 
His pieces are composed of field recordings, extended techniques, childhood memories, with samples of internet  mixed with mainstream myths. Also, he likes to transmute the ritual of the concert by his experiences in theater to find other musical formats to listen to these contemporary musics. He uses computer music software (such as max-msp) and hijacks it for the stage and "passive" audience participation. 
Also he stages pieces from the contemporary repertoire for himself and his international kollektif trio Totem- KIT - like their "le grand plongeon" - remix of the orchestral piece Atlantis by Peter Eötvös.

Some scores have been commissioned and played by ensembles such as les métaboles, Intercontemporain, soundinitiative-paris, leminiscate-basel, lucillin- luxembourg, avanti-helsinki, batida & eklekto-genève, les voix animées-Toulon, musicatreize-marseille and öx&öl-zurich.

He regularly composes electronic music for theater or dance, for the Schauspielhaus Zürich and the Deutsches Theater Berlin, or for directors and choreographers- such as Bernadette Köbele.  Leo participated for shows, workshop by Alessandro Sciarroni or Sebastian Baumgartner, or 
 
Since 2018, he has been working as an assistant for the composer and performer Jörg Köppl.

TUTORIAL


Tuto
I did some prototype, kind of small piece after commission, or a workshop or an invitation to do a performance in a other country or another place which not my “home”. 
Most of the time it is a reflection, an investigation to relax the clichés I had about the context I did the piece. I did it with many collaborators. 




ALBUMS


I conduct sort of theater composed with different musics I compose around a thema : each album is a celebration, a translation for the stage, resultat of a process from different format and different settings - made with lots of friends such as Leandro Gianini, Dalius Singer,  Mariana Grünig and also Cimon Finix, Louise Decaillet...

 have a look to my ARCHIVES


His pratice focus on feeling the surround, invite audience to a sharing of our incomplétudes.
Il s’entraine jour après jour à la pensée
Décoloniale // Dé-polémique //Dé-compétitistes.
En devenir noir/sorcières/ queer/ animal. Il aime utiliser les codes de la musique composée, contemporaine pour les mettre dans des formes parlées- immersive.  
Il compose à la place des animals, des plantes, des fantômes. Il pousse la composition aux limites de la pensée. Cette une sorte de réponse à l’extinction de la biodiversité, aux l’effondement passés et futurs. Il réponds à la sensibilité face à la souverainté, à la monoculture, au plantanocene. ( il offre une sorte de training)
En tant que musicien, il entretient un rapport nuancé avec ses instruments hors-corps qui lui permis de pouvoir s’exprimer.
En tant que compositeur, il  s’entraîne à aimer les failles des instruments, de la technologie/ technique pour les combiner avec les sons d’objets et de machines, d’animaux et de plantes- pour se rapprocher d’eux-elles
