Denis Frajerman (F)
Started as composer in the French experimental Band PALO ALTO. With a strong interest in literature and orality as a musician, he collaborates regularly with storytellers and writers for radio sessions, oratorios, or records. Strongly linked to the work of Antoine Volodine, his first solo album, Les Suites Volodine (Noise Musem/Naïve, 1999), was directly influenced by his writings. They both share a taste for haunting atmospheres, black humor, witchcraft.
Volodine and Frajerman also worked on creations, Des Anges Mineurs, post-exotic oratorio composed for six musicians, singer, narrator, dancer and videographer (La Cigale, 2000), and Vociférations, cantopera for eleven musicians, ordered by the Radiophonic Creation Workshops of France Culture (2004). The broadcasting on Radio France of this last work was followed by a residency at the Lieu Unique, National Theatre of Nantes for the concert version.
Composer of soundtracks for contemporary dance, object theater, animation, short films, documentaries, he has developed in recent years as a guitarist an approach to this instrument influenced by folk music from Greece and rural blues of the southern United States.
