About Claudine Simon
Claudine Simon is a pianist, artist, improviser and performer. She is developing a sound creation work that attempts to experiment, by hybridizing it, with the construction and capacities of her instrument.
Trained at the CNSMD in Paris with Jean-François Heisser and Pierre-Laurent Aimard, she has performed as a soloist or chamber musician at the Lyon Opera, La Roque d'Anthéron, the Opéra-Comique, the Cité de la Musique, the Tautavel and Aix-en-Provence festivals, as well as abroad (tours in India, China, Europe, etc.).
At the same time, her creative work focuses on the conception of performances that allow her to question her relationship with the instrument. In 2021, she conceived Pianomachine, a device that transforms the piano's lutherie and allows her to open up a new playing space inside the instrument.
