DossierREVIVALMOONDOG

Moondog is a fascinating figure in the history of music, resolutely outside the box, both in his compositions and in his atypical personality. This composer, who immersed himself in the music of the past, nurturing a passion for Johann Sebastian Bach and for polyphony, mixed these influences with Amerindian music and jazz, inaugurating before anyone else the trend that is now called "minimalist music".
Moondog has never been so popular. His rediscovery in France was made possible thanks to the titanic work undertaken by Amaury Cornut, to Stéphane Garin's passion for Elpmas and to the talent of pianist François Mardirossian.
