Whom I am in some words ...
From Belgium, this musician as, since 1983, chosen France as artistic
host country. He privileges the improvised piano, contemporary and
jazz, solo or in orchestral formation. Later, he puts his skills of
composer and of conductor in the service of a widened jazz-fusion
formation then he takes up in the middle of the 90s with the
classic-contemporary writing while sharing this one with the other
musical approaches and the technological developments. Actor lover of
the decompartmentalization of the genres, Patrick Defossez builds a work which marries numerous aesthetics sensitively
in a kind of " polyphony of the styles ". He writes as well orchestral
and vocal musical works for the architectural heritage - Cathédrale
Notre-Dame de Reims, for the city of Angers,
... - that works for the theater or the experimental musics allying the
writing structured by the contemporary music in that much more free of
the "American free-music" (Ensemble Intercontemporain, ...). Patrick
Defossez (DE et CA de Jazz Ministry of Culture in France /
Berklee School of Boston, ...)

and the contemporary musical composition dedicated to the new
technologies - électrojazz - in a national Music academy/conservatory
