Grande Halle de la Villette,

Music academy-trained and former student at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Christophe Chassol draws inspiration from his favourites in both classical (Steve Reich and Stravinski) and popular music (Ennio Morricone, Miles Davis, The Cure), to create compositions whereby unpredictability seems to be the operative word. Fusion, electro, jazz, film scores… they’re all in there, adding to his surprising and precarious sound, full of unexpected sonorous explosions and unpredictable frenzied beats. A little like Anna Meredith, Chassol has managed to make classical music bend the knee to fun.
