Jonathan Fitoussi (b. 1978) is a French composer residing in Paris.
He works on minimalist and contemporary musical forms. His solo works in recent years have explored a fusion of electronic and acoustic sounds with melodic textures, colors and emotions in a cinematographic aesthetic style.
As a composer of electronic music, Jonathan Fitoussi (Pan European, Versatile Records, Cezame…) is engaged in practices of analog and modular synthesis, projects supported by the pioneers of electronic music like Suzanne Ciani and Morton Subotnick.
His work has been marked by the encounter with Daniel Caux (Shandar Records), François Bayle (GRM) or Bernard Baschet sound sculptor. He has developed an intense passion for recording and analog studio technology, rare instruments, and each composition is the result of his painstaking craftsmanship.
