Renaud-Gabriel Pion, clarinetist, multi-instrumentalist on modern and baroque/Renaissance woodwinds, and composer, using electronics, has published several thematic albums ranging from solo to duo or orchestra. As an improviser, he notably explores temperament and timbres in Early music and modal music.
RGP leads the Ensemble 1529, a post-minimalist orchestra he created in 2019.
He recently wrote (dec 2022) a contemporary opera following projects that have summoned sound design, vocality, instrumental gesture, archeology of the soundscape. He is for this a scholarship holder of the Beaumarchais-SACD Foundation.
He develops a language in a plurality and a preoccupation with temperament, a dimension which crosses musical styles and cultures.
RGP uses to compose programming tools, written notations as well as improvisation processes, and regards composition and playing as listening.
