Short Biography

Born in 1974 in Nantes (France), Benoit Granier is a Composer, Professor, (ethno) Musicologist, Visual and sonic artist, Philosopher, and life long believer in collaborative works within the arts. After completing a Ph.D. in Computer music and composition at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, he moved to Beijing, China, to teach at central conservatory of Music, and developped strong relationships between China and other countries, mainly in Europe and the USA.

In 2008, he founded in Beijing the Timi Modern Music Ensemble, a cultural encounter between western instruments and traditional Chinese instruments.

 

Among the pieces premiered by the Timi were works by emerging composers such as Tony Deritis, John Mallia and his personal pieces.
