(b 1954 )

Composer Thierry Lancino was born in 1954 in France and studied at the University of Poitiers and Conservatoire de Paris where he received the Prix de composition and elecroacoustics (1972–1977). He was a Lavoisier Scholar and recipient of the Villa Medicis hors les Murs award (French Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 1979–81, 1983–84). At Stanford University he pursued his musical research and became a specialist in computer sound synthesis. He was offered a position at the Pompidou Centre Music Research Institute (IRCAM) where he taught, researched and composed (1981–1988). He considers this period the backbone of a thorough and rich apprenticeship. Thirsty for broadening and maturing his aesthetic vision, Lancino left the Parisian institute for the French Academy in Rome at Villa Medici (1988–1990), where he was appointed pensionnaire (formerly the Prix de Rome). After multiple extended residences as a composer, he settled in Manhattan, where he currently resides. In 2007, he was awarded the prestigious Koussevitzky Music Foundations Commission. If Lancino’s creative life was first dedicated to experimenting with sound phenomena—artistically and scientifically—he has been focusing more lately on lyrical, colourful and bold writing, with a freedom of style that embraces both seduction and spirituality. His works have been commissioned by major festivals and orchestras in Europe and in the United States. Recordings are available on Wergo, K617, Ades-MFA and Naxos.
