Christian Vasseur

Christian Vasseur had been learning guitar on his own for some time when he met his first teacher Pascal Boëls. Then, he took classes at the Conservatoire de Lille and discovered the Renaissance Lute with Eugène Ferré at the Conservatoire de Toulouse for four years and took classes with renown Lute players such as Paul O'Dette and Yasunori Imamura. Practising the Lute made him curious about improvisation and oriental music.
After several years of Early music repertory, he chose to dedicate himself to stage performance and music writing. At this stages, he started introducing some acting in his performances, mixing acoustic and electronic sounds, improvised and written pieces. For 15 years, he has been teaching musical theatre and free improvisation classes to various groups of people. The Christian Vasseur's music borrows as much from classical tradition as from popular music. It is free of any form of dogma. It is an ancient music of the future.
