Biographical note

Stéphane de Gérando initially trained as both a composer and researcher, at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (Premier Prix and 3e cycle premier nommé de composition), at university (doctor, habilité à diriger les recherches) and at IRCAM (computer science course). He won the 1994 International Stipendienspreis at the Darmstadt Festival of Contemporary Music, the Prix de l'Association des Anciens Élèves et Élèves des Conservatoires Nationaux Supérieurs de Musique et d'Art Dramatique de Paris (1991), the Prix Académique de la SACEM (1995), and was a laureate of the Sasakawa Foundation in 1993 and 1994.

His catalog includes over 90 works, from solo instruments to orchestras with or without electronics, digital installations, monumental projections, virtual tableaux, polyartistic creations for theater - dance - music - digital technologies.

Since 2007, he has focused on Labyrinthe du temps, a multi-media work that is both polyartistic and technological. With international support from France, one of the last monumental projections of the Labyrinthe du temps was on Tehran's Azadi Tower on July 19, 2018 (numerous television broadcasts, press agency photos, front pages, articles).

Gérando's publications, including books, articles and a dictionary, address historical, aesthetic, pedagogical and institutional issues linked to the notion of creation, as well as algorithmic issues (world firsts) and, more broadly, digital technologies, with scientific collaborators such as Athanase Papadopoulos, Franck Jedrzejewski and Christophe Mourougane (mathematicians), Jérôme Pétri (astrophysicist), Louis Bigo (computer scientist) and Gille Baroin (doctor of engineering).
