Mathieu Corajod

Composer, choreographer and stage director, Mathieu Corajod (*1989, CH/FR) works with instruments, voice, body, space and electronics.

After his studies at the Bern University of the Arts (HKB), the University of Bern and at IRCAM (Cursus 18-19), he founded his own interdisciplinary ensemble, the Compagnie Mixt Forma, which notably performed at the Grande Salle of the Centre Pompidou as part of the Festival Manifeste in Paris. In 2022 he composed and directed his first opera, commissioned by the Opéra national de Lorraine and Festival Musica. He is laureate of the dance commission for emerging choreographers of the SACD-Beaumarchais Association in duo with Pierre Lison.

His musical works have been commissioned and performed by ensembles and musicians such as Ensemble Divertimento, Ensemble Adapter, Ensemble Interface, Ensemble soyuz21, the Bern Chamber Orchestra, Duo Eventuell or Duo Alto. His electronic works have been played at the ICST (Zürich), IRCAM (Paris), and SAT (Montreal).

He elaborates a choreographic language in pieces such as “Ça va bien avec comment tu vis” (for two dancers and electronics), “Axes” (instrumental dance), “Lazzi du nez” (for imaginary violin) or “Anima” (breath for dancers).

His open, interactive, performative, pedagogical or site-specific works include an important collaborative and inclusive dimension. In residence at the conservatory of Fribourg, he thus composes educational pieces with electroacoustic tape. Selected for the European call for projects Merge up! he co-founded the composers’ collective CUE Creative/Union/Experience with Giulia Lorusso and Giovanni Montianni.

Mathieu Corajod has received grants from several foundations, including Nicati-de Luze. In 2018, the artistic commission of the Canton of Bern awarded him a grant to stay at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris. In 2022 he was in residency for choreographic and musical creation at the Abbaye de Royaumont with the Compagnie Mixt Forma. He is currently supported by the Aargauer Kuratorium with a Werkbeitrag.

Since 2015 he has also held various positions at the Bern University of the Arts (assistant, curator, researcher, guest professor). As a PhD candidate at the University of Geneva as part of the SNSF-funded research project “Schreiben mit Stimmen” at the HKB, he is focusing his doctoral thesis on the work of the composer and linguist Hans Wüthrich.
