Fabrice Villard is a musician who writes, or the contrary.
He is a clarinet player in the ensemble Dedalus and collaborates regularly with the ensemble Offrandes.
He teaches improvisation and non-conventional writing at the Centre de formation des musiciens intervenants d’Orsay in the programme of the Faculté Paris-Sud. He has studied and played Tom Johnson’s music for over 20 years.
He develops a work of literary writing for performances mixing music and sound poetry (programmes ‘A l’Improviste’ on France Musique in 2017 and 2018) and solo ‘word recitals’.
He sometimes responds to commissions (text entitled ‘Abricadabrac’, from the Musiques Démesurées festival in Clermont-Ferrand, created in November 2018, with music by Vincent Bouchot).
