Bio

After having studied music for a while (cello, piano and trumpet), Grégoire Blanc first heard about the theremin as he was 15. His first contact with the instrument was a revelation.

Grégoire just graduated in mechanical engineering at “École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts et Métiers”, and is now studying music as a science (acoustics, signal processing and computer science applied to music) at IRCAM – the famous research institute created by Pierre Boulez in the 70s.

Beside his studies, he is involved in several musical projects, on stage, for studio recordings, etc.
