Julien Tarride, born in 1979 in France, is both a composer and visual artist. His work combines perfoming arts with new technologies such as music and generated scores as well as video and 3D computer-based images. His music is mostly inspired by classical and contemporary music, musique concrète, electronic and American repetitive music. Since 2002, Julien Tarride has worked as a composer and stage designer for the choreographers Andonis Foniadakis (close collaborator), Benjamin Millepied, Davy Brun, Aurélien Dougé, Andrew Skeels, Ken Ossola. He has also contributed to many other artists’ work: composers, visual artists, writers and film makers, such as for Leo Carax (music and sound design for ‹Holly Motors› in 2012). At Theater Basel, he will create the music for Andonis Foniadaki's new creation in the season 22/23 as part of the Double Bill dance evening ‹Explosiv!›.
