BIOGRAPHY

More than a percussionist Philippe Spiesser is an atypical and enthralling musician. Born in 1971 in France, and coming from a family of musicians, he studied percussion at the Strasbourg Superior Conservatory of Music. Winner of the European Competition for Young Talents in 1997, he is always travelling and searching for new experiences and meetings with creators from all artistic origins such as dance, theatre, image and electronic sounds.

Philippe Spiesser is also invited to play as soloist with orchestras such as Strasbourg Philharmonique Orchestra, Camerata de France, Chinese Shenyang orchestra, Modern Lemanic Ensemble, Languedoc Mediterranean Orchestra.

Additionally he gives masterclasses in numerous Music Universities around the world. Previously he has been teaching in Madrid Neopercusion and Palma de Mallorca Superior Conservatory of Music.

Since 2012, he also has an artist residence at the Centro Ricerche Musicali in Rome, where he is dedicated to research on new music with acoustic instruments processed by electronics, in particular SkinAct and Feed Drum invented by the composer and researcher Michelangelo Lupone. In the same area, since 2015, Philippe Spiesser is leading a new research project on gesture capture, GeKiPe, at the HEM Geneva Superior Conservatory of Music in partnership with the IRCAM Center Pompidou in Paris.
