“To hear what you write”

Abstract

In a conversation with E. Kouprovskaia, the French composer Philippe Hurel characterizes some features of his style. As a follower of the spectral school, he pays serious attention to working with timbre, while he tries to make his works not to be similar to each other. He describes in detail the features of his creative style, which are manifested in the mixing of electronics with natural sound, in the non-standard use of morphing techniques.

The composer also talks about his vision of the current situation, including in the musical life of France.
