Eliott Delafosse

Eliott Delafosse (French, b. 1994) is a composer and sound artist. Fascinated by ritual and mysticism, he aims at achieving high intensity and density, that can be expressed through static textures as well as rhythmical loops, in a cathartic approach.

He graduated in composition from the Conservatoire Royal de Mons, where he studied contemporary music in Claude Ledoux’s class, and the relationship between music and image under the guidance of Denis Pousseur and Jean-Luc Fafchamps.

He has collaborated with Ex Novo, Ensemble 21, Musiques Nouvelles, Sturm Und Klang, LAPS, Fractales, Symfonie Orkest Vlaanderen, I Solisti and Spectra. He won the Prix Henri Pousseur in 2018 and the Prix André Souris from the Forum des Compositeurs in 2021. Delafosse’s visual work includes soundtracks for several short films, as well as creations for dance and theater. He has also worked on installations and performs on stage as an electroacoustic improviser.
