Christelle Séry


She starts music and guitar with Ako Ito & Henri Dorigny in Nice and studies further at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris (prizes in guitar, chamber music, pedagogy). 

Thanks to her musical studies, her earlier scene experience and thanks to different meetings, she focuses to the contemporary repertoire, the performing arts, improvised and amplified musics. 

       She explores the whole range of expressiveness that both guitar and instrumental gesture offer, through the setting of specific concert programs, first for acoustic/classical guitar alone, then for guitar and electronics (mixed works). She also created a new soloist repertoire for electric guitar ( works by Liao, Pattar, Naegelen, Momi, Combier).

Guitarist of the Ensemble Cairn since it was founded in 1997, she also plays with the Ensemble Intercontemporain. She works in with composers and performs in festivals such as Manifeste (Ircam-Centre Pompidou), Festival d'Automne à Paris (Cité de la musique), Why Note, Archipels, Clip & Clap (musée du Louvre), Musica, Täge für Neue Musik, Voix Nouvelles, Ars Musica, Musiques de notre temps, Music Forum of Taipei, INTER/actions of Bangor (UK), Tokyo Spring Festival, Le bruit de la musique...
