Florent Caron Darras

As sensitive to electronic as to traditional music (notably Georgian, Persian, and Japanese), Florent Caron Darras writes music that is focused on repetition and ornamentation and is influenced, even in its titles, by the relationships among humans, the environment, and technology. His current work focuses on microrhythms and on the formal consequences of analogies between the living and technology, for a conception of time and sound space inspired by environmental models. Always ambivalent between slow deployment of matter and backwash movements, his music establishes links between the worlds of soundscape (field recording, bioacoustics), spectral music, minimalist music, or ambient techno.
