Alice Hebborn

Alice Hebborn was born in 1990 in Brussels. She studied composition with Claude Ledoux, Gilles Gobert and Geoffrey François at the Conservatoire de Mons/ARTS2. In her instrumental compositions, she draws her inspiration from the observation of nature. She is looking for a flexible and inclusive style of writing, leaving a creative space for the performers. Her music has been played by ensembles such as Musiques nouvelles, the Amôn Quartet, the Fractales Ensemble, Sturm Und Klang, the Polish Cello Quartet. Alice Hebborn likes to connect her work to the visual and performing arts. She co-founded the collective Une Tribu, with which she leads creations of object and puppet theatre including "La Course", "Blizzard" and "La Brèche". She composes the music for various shows for young audiences, including "Alberta Tonnerre" by the Compagnie des Mutants. She composes for the exhibition "Inspire" at ISELP.

"(...) Alice Hebborn lets a musical seismographic net flow, like the limpid water of a pond reacting to the slightest wind, the slightest change of light, the slightest impact of dust, she creates a fragile stability, dependent on all atmospheric impacts, a phrase that draws its strength from integrating the heterogeneity of the environment.
