Hélène Breschand

Hélène Breschand, composer, soloist and contemporary experimental harpist. She belongs to the generation of musicians seeking cross-border adventures. Hélène's works are characterized by freedom of interpretation and interdisciplinary openness. Her compositional approach allows her to combine many artistic disciplines, such as visual arts, choreography, film, lighting, text and theatrical activities. He collaborates with composers on improvised and score-based pieces, among others with contemporary composers (Luc Ferrari, Eliane Radigue, David Toop, Elliott Sharp, Reinhold Friedl, Franck Vigroux, Wilfried Wendling...) He also works with the visual arts (Hiroshi Sugimoto , Christian Marclay...), cinema (Carl Theodor Dreyer's Jeanne d'Arc, Charles Bryant's Salomé) and dance (with Mic Guillaumes, Christian UBL...).
