Rémy Bélanger de Beauport

violoncelliste improvisateur | free improv cellist


Free-improv cellist Rémy Bélanger de Beauport’s artistic practice as an experimental musician dates back to his teenage years. Influenced by Karlheinz Stockhausen and Nirvana, he publishes recordings since 2003. His approch is based on the body, intuition and interaction, sound textures and an intense focus on unfolding structures.
