Biography

Jean-Luc Fafchamps (°1960) is a pianist and composer. He studied at the Conservatoire de Mons and at Louvain-la-Neuve University. As founding member of the Ictus Ensemble, he took part in many concert performances in large ensembles or chamber groups and in mixed performances, particularly accompanying dance and theatre. He made recordings for Sub Rosa of works by Bowles, Liszt, Feldman, Dallapiccola, Duchamp, Scelsi and Berio and contributed to numerous recordings with the Ictus Ensemble and several singers.
His compositions were hailed by the UNESCO International Rostrum of Young Composers (Attrition for string octet) and won him the Octave des Musiques Classiques 2006. The Ictus Ensemble, the Ensemble Intercontemporain, Musiques Nouvelles, the Danel quartet, the National Orchestra of Lille, Liège Philharmonic Orchestra, TM+, Gageego and many more performed his work. It has been on the programme of many international festivals like Ars Musica (Brussels), Présences (Paris), Vilnius, Biennial of Venice, Warsaw, Lima, Budapest, etc..
He is currently developping several long-term projects in which his sense of synthesis is blossoming into mutually referential pieces. Among those, a vast network of cycles – the Lettres Soufies – has occupied him for fifteen years. His work has been the subject of five monographic recordings for Sub Rosa (Attrition, 1993 ; Melencholia si…, 2003 ; KDGhZ2SA, a Six-letter Sufi Word (2012) ; Back to… (2013) and YZ3Z2Z1S2, a Five-letter Sufi Word), and one more, ….lignes…, for Fuga Libera (2009). 
He teaches musical analysis at the Conservatoire de Mons.
