Composer (b. 1971)
At the age of 19 Jérôme Combier decided to learn music. A student in musicology at the University of Saint Denis, he learned to play the guitar, but it was his encounters with Hacène Larbi and Emmanuel Nunes at the Conservatoire de Paris that led him to composition. Resident at the Villa Médicis in 2004-05, he met Raphaël Thierry who created the visual installations for the series Vies silencieuses written for Cairn, an ensemble founded and led by Combier sice 1997.
In 2008, upon the invitation of the ensemble Ictus, he imagined alongside Pierre Nouvel and Bertrand Couderc, the staged adapatation of W.G. Sebald’s Austerlitz (premiered during the 2011 Aix-en-Provence festival). With the author Atiq Rahimi and upon the request by the Opéra de Lyon, he wrote Terre et cendres (2012).
