Pascale Jakubowski

Pascale Jakubowski (born in Algeria, resident in France) composer. She studied musical theory, composition and analysis at the Conservatoire National de Region de Bordeaux and she obtained the highest award. She established early correspondence between certain works of visual artists and developed a sonic palette with tools experimented at IRCAM in Paris. During her residencies, she has exuded a kind of utopia, designing partitions which combines musicians from different cultural backgrounds and, in June 2005, she obtained the prices of SACEM and Pierre et Germaine Labole. She also responds to requests for the most singular aspect and virtuoso of her language. Her work for piano, Alliance, has been selected for the Dutilleux contest. Poetry is a source of inspiration for her creation. At a conference on the haiku at the University of Lyon, she supported the interpretation of her compositions from her reflections on the function of the sketch, the confrontation of cultures and poetic language as the birthplace of musical architecture. In Le Haïku en France and Rencontre entre artistes et mathématiciennes, two books published editions by Kimé (collection “Les cahiers de la Marge”) and by L’Harmattan, she invites us to share her artistic and intellectual adventure. Her works are broadcast during programs devoted to her on France-Musique and France-Culture. She was commissioned by the state, Radio France, festivals, departments and soloists.
