Medicine and Music

Since 1999, Élie has been integrating his musical and medical backgrounds by working on experimental and electroacoustic compositions that use sounds drawn from human physiology.  His works composed at the crossroads of music and his medical experience, include Coma, Antenatal, and DNA which is scheduled to be released by Radio France as a boxed set in the fall of 2017. DNA, which stands not only for the genetic code but also for Dead Then New Born in Afghanistan, translates into music the wartime experience recounted in his book. It includes molecular signals captured in sound as well as sounds of war.
