Baudouin De Jaer

Baudouin de Jaer : Composer, violinist, Baudouin de Jaer (Be) studied composition with Philippe Boesmans, Henri Pousseur, Frederic Rzewski also with Bruce Mather at Mc Gill University of Montreal.

His path connects him permanently to the fire of Earth and cosmos motion. Fascinated by the huge antennas which keeps on probing the sounds of the universe, he draws his music, before writing it, on vast plans where planets line up and rotate, while searching the ground, turning it upside down like a real farmer or surveying it looking for instruments echoing in unison.
