"LAtelier Musicien", founded by the composers Claude LEDOUX, Michel FOURGON and Denis BOSSE, is the product of several shared preoccupations at once artistic, philosophical and social. Artistically, even if their respective styles belong to different aesthetics, these three artists share the same desire to explore musical matter, mainly as regards tone-colour and the concertante dimension, with the combinatorial heritage as a connecting factor.
The social and philosophical aspects of their approach go hand in hand, an association that is the expression of their wish, as composers, to produce musical events not only through the production of new works but also through the organisation of their circulation. This is not to say they wish to create a movement, rather it is, according to the philosopher Pascal Nottet with whom they work, the setting up of an "Atelier Musicien", a "Musician Workshop", a meeting-place for exanges and explorations.

Lastly, they seek to establish a more equitable relationship whith the performer, freeing a first performance from dependancy on the sollicitations of performers. If musical invention is to proceed untrammelled, it must precede the intervention of the performer.
As a good exemple, the recording made with "LAutre trio" (Cyprès records) is the expression of this particular, original approach to composition.
