  Jean-Louis CADÉE (St Mandé 1952)

Jean-Louis Cadée was born on May 11, 1952 in St. Mandé (France). He studied the piano, the harpsichord, the organ, percussion instruments, harmony, counterpoint, musical analysis, orchestration and composition. At a very young age already he became interested in religious architecture. He paid visits to a large number of abbeys, cathedrals and churches i.e. "the living witnesses to our civilization". After a visit to the cathedral of Nevers he composed the "Symphony for a Cathedral" and summarized his thoughts in his work "Sacred Music and Religious Architecture in the West". His catalog comprises more than 85 works, including 2 symphonies, 7 concertos for various instruments, chamber music works, vocal and choral works, works for the organ, for percussion instruments, etc. Jean-Louis Cadée is also interested in the use of an organ expressive to the touch for which he worked out a new musical notation. His musical style is varied. It is post-serial, aleatoric, use of micro-intervals (¼ of tone), of non-tempered scales, (livre d'orgue), smooth sound space, integration of space, but also classical (concertos, chorales,...).
