HOW THIS ALL STARTED...
THIS IS ME!
Hello! My name is Nolwenn Collet.
I am a French musician and I improvise and compose music for dance:
I have been writing music for ballet class from the very moment I started playing for dancers.
When I compose, It is as if I was telling a story...
So let's start with a few lines about me!
PROVENCE!... This is where I was born, in a family of musicians.
From the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic and PACIFIC OCEAN in New Caledonia, NATURE and especially THE SEA have always inspired me as I have spent most of my life living on Islands!
PARIS....is the city where my parents met.
This is also where I trained as a musician and first worked for dance...by pure accident!
After I graduated in piano accompaniment, I was appointed as permanent accompanist for instruments and singers in the Conservatoire Erik Satie, the Conservatoire of the 7th arrondissement in Paris [Conservatoires in France have been teaching Music, Dance and Drama under the same roof ever since Paris Opéra was created by Louis XIV]. So, one day, I was asked to accompany my first ballet class since the regular pianist was away and so the journey began!
