A composer and percussionist, born in 1971 in Vancouver (Canada), Jérôme Berney grew up in Lausanne (Switzerland). Piano at 7; drums at 10; a mother in the Ensemble Vocal de Lausanne; a passion for jazz since adolescence, and for reading too…
Today, Jérôme Berney creates blends, cross fertilisations, between jazz, classical, world music and poetry, generating unusual meetings between classical choirs and all types of instrumentalists, as in his African oratorio “Reine Pokou” (2017); his oriental Easter oratorio “Equinoxe” (2022); or his tableaux written for the Fête des Vignerons 2019 – a tradition classed as an intangible cultural heritage by Unesco – of which he was one of the three composers.
