Contemporary Works - VOL 1


I am delighted to present you my new album CONTEMPORARY WORKS, the first of a new collection that I develop with the label SuperPitch, distributed by BMG - Artit Series -
Editor’s presentation: “Helmed by French composer and pianist Denis Levaillant, here comes a collection of contemporary classical music. The compositions, recorded with a small ensemble, touch the heart and trigger a wide range of emotions, at times evocative and tender, at others melancholic, ominous. Levaillant explores the desolate void and intricacies the human soul offers, with a depth both abyssal and poignant. Art imitates Life, and Life imitates Art.”


New Album - Electro Space Piano

Electro Space Piano Cover



A new album, ELECTRO SPACE PIANO. It makes it possible to follow the historical evolution of digital sound treatments since it brings together three works for piano and electronics. These pieces are all organized in the same way, a concert piano dialoguing with an orchestra of transformed piano sounds: Piano transit, pioneering work in this field (1983, commissioned by the Ministère de la Culture), Elektrospacepiano (2003, commissioned by the Ina-Grm) and the latest, entirely realized in my studio, Piano Augmented: More Lights (2019).

Shita Kiri Suzume - Denis Levaillant @Ars Musica (2016)

We have just received the beautiful film of Shita-Kiri Suzume, a new work by Denis Levaillant and we decided to share it with you!


Shita-Kiri Suzume is composed for shakuhachi (sublimely played by Reison Kuroda) and ensemble (here Musiques Nouvelles directed by Jean-Paul Dessy). The show was created in November 2016 at the Ars Musica Festival in Brussels, with the live drawings of Kan Takahama and Vincent Fortemps.



AURORA BOREALIS

Slightly 'minimal' piano sequences are processed and mixed with electro sounds; each track appears in three versions: mix, the piano alone, and electro alone. The resulting music is very original. This album is part of the project SoloPianoSolo Piano augmented Recital.

Augmented piano recital

I developed this project with Marc Piera, sound director at the Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris, where he perfected an avant-garde sound system.
Throughout the recital, the piano is amplified and transformed, while the sound is spatialised.
As it goes along, the electro joins in the dance.
