(b 1952 )

Philippe Manoury studied at the Paris École Normale de Musique and at the Conservatoire, while pursuing his own interest in computer-generated music. He has been involved in the activities of IRCAM (the Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique) in Paris, and the Ensemble InterContemporain, and has held important positions in the teaching and promulgation of electro-acoustic music.


Influenced by Stockhausen and Boulez, Manoury has also been interested in the mathematical ideas of Xenakis and the synthesis of traditional instrumental sound with computer technology. His 60e Parallèle, an opera set in an airport, makes use of various avant-garde techniques, the work involving passengers stranded by a snow-storm. Other works include Jupiter for flute and electronics, Pluton for MIDI-piano and electronics, Neptune for three percussion instruments and computer, and his Numéro huit for 103 players.
