Bolens, Nicolas 




Nicolas Bolens, composer

Nicolas Bolens was born in Geneva and began his musical education with the composer and pianist Arié Dzierlatka. Despite his deep interest in the sciences, he decided as a young man to continue his artistic studies at the academy of mu-sic where he graduated with a piano diploma and a composition award with spe-cial mention from the class of Jean Balissat. He profited from the guidance of Eric Gaudibert, Rudolph Kelterborn, Klaus Huber, Edison Denissov and many more.

In 1993 he was a prize winner in the Concours pour Jeunes Compositeurs orga-nised by the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne; he also received awards from several foundations (Leenaards, Banque Cantonale Neuchâteloise, to name a few) and accepted numerous commissions from the Trio Grumiaux, the Nouvel Ensemble Contemporain/ NEC, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and others.

His more recent studies took him into the field of musical information technolo-gies and digital technology under the tutelage of Eric Daubresse, musical assis-tant at the IRCAM. These technologies have been reflected in in his works since 2004. Parallel to his work as a composer, Nicolas Bolens has taught piano and improvisation at the Jaques-Dalcroze Institut and composition at the Geneva University of Music (in collaboration with Eric Gaudibert). Nicolas Bolens cur-rently teaches counterpoint, composition and 20th century writing at the Geneva University of Music.
He was the president of the Swiss Association of Musicians from 2004 to 2007 .
