Composer with SCRIME digital tools
Born in 1951, Jean-Marie Colin began his musical studies in 1970 at the CRR in Rouen, as an organist (with Louis Thiry), also turning to composition. Through this last activity, he approaches electroacoustics and synthesizers. He assiduously practices improvisation, alone and in ensembles. He was director of conservatories and is a founding member of the association "Conservatoires de France". He was Inspector (music), at the Ministry of Culture, from 1992 to 2014, except between 2007 and 2012, a period during which he directed the CRD de l'Aveyron. At the same time, he carries out multiple activities as a concert performer and composer (more than 60 works in his catalog), and lends himself to lively and fruitful encounters with many musicians and other artists (dance, theater, visual arts), of all aesthetics. Photographer and videographer, he works on multidisciplinary shows that link all of his artistic practices (music and images), and in which he notably plays Karlax.
