About Jean Jacques Lemetre

Jean Jacques Lemetre is a genius and a legend. He is a man of many parts, who has excelled and pushed the boundaries of music into new territories and realms. There is hardly a genre of music which he has not composed or created and a very few instruments which he has not mastered. He has been the most critical figure in the iconic ‘Theatre du Soleil’. Apart from being a musician, Jean Jacques Lemetre is a master luthier and has created over 2000 musical instruments. He is also a teacher of rare distinction & we are honoured to be hosting him here in Kolkata.


As a child already, Jean Jacques Lemêtre taught himself how to play a variety of instruments.  As a 12 year old he performed with Parisian rock bands, sings and played the saxophone and clarinet. He approaches individual musical eras and styles through the direct handling of certain typical instruments in order to obtain a profound understanding “from within” as it were.

Parallel to this he began a wide comprehensive academic training:

Gregorian Chants at the Acedemy of Loretto, Clarinet, Saxophone, Composition and Instrument Building at the Paris conservatory and graduated with several awards, degrees and diplomas (further details: see below).

He has performed with several French symphonic orchestras, engages – partly exclusively – in the music and the instruments of the Middle Ages (Orchestre Médiéval de Paris), works with Pierre Boulez in his Orchestre Intercontemporain. In between he returns to Rock, plays Jazz and Free Jazz, pertaining stilistic elements of European and extra Europan Folklore, as well as traditional music of the Middle East.

In 1978 he worked for the first time with Ariane Mnouchkine and her Théâtre du Soleil  (Mephisto) where he found his artistic focus. The work and success of one of the most important theatres of our time is now unthinkable without him .

He prepares himself intensively for every production: sejourns for a relevant period of time in a certain country, exploring its traditions, religion and art, collecting instruments, re-constructing them or building new ones in order to attain a particular timbre of sound.
During the process of experimenting, he selects together with the performers from a vast number of instruments those ones, which reflect the basic mood of a performance, a part’s character or a scene’s specific rhythm.

On the evening of the premier his music is compositionally committed, however remaining open to individual inspiration throughout the performance.

A member of the ensemble describes these unusual proceedings:

“Jean Jacques invents or rather “finds” the music at the very moment the sound occurs. He breathes with the performers. He follows the constantly alternating beat  of the pulse of every figure. He transfers the vibes of the emotions into space -makes visible the traces every actor draws around and carries them with him like the lines of a magnetic field.
It seems as if certain impulses flow from the stage in his hands directly and are conducted into the instruments’ leather, wood or metal. From these in turn arise pictures and rhythms which are neither realistic nor abstract, but create a certain space in which the tale can complete itself.”

As well as working intensively with Ariane Mnouchkine he has since the 70’s taken part in film- tv- and theatre productions, so vast in number that they can scarcely be kept track of.

He has written theatre-, ballet- and film music, and has also composed three operas and music for the Olympic Winter Games  in Alberville 1992, not to mention the Bi-Centennial of the French Revolution. He  creates audio-visual experiments, circus spectacles, music for Vaudeville and advertising and engages in the set up of multi media internet presence. For the opening night of the tv channel ARTE he was in charge as musical director (further details: see below).

He does seminars and workshops on traditional instruments and theatre music throughout the world (Japan, China, Indonesia, India). He is continually invited to particular countries, the musical traditions of which have unfortunately been buried by virtue of political developments and wars, in order to assist in reviving the traditional tunes and to pass on his knowledge about the meaning and the use of their traditional instruments.

Thus he was for instance recently several times in Afghanistan.

Many pieces of his live performed theatre music have been recorded on CD , furthermore  4 CDs of his own concert compositions are now available (further details: see below).

From all over the world Jean Jacques Lemêtre collects original instruments (of which in some cases he probably owns the last one) and creates his individual constructions in order to achieve a certain timbre of sound for stage music.

In the meantime his collection consists of more than 2500 instruments. For the live music of ThdS’ “Circle of the Atrides” about 300 of these were playd by him and his assistants on a secondary stage exclusively erected for the musicians.

Several of his pieces of theatre music for the Théâtre du Soleil  were awarded with a prize of the „Meilleure Composition Scénique de l’Année“.

In 2005 he was the first to be awarded with the newly founded Prix Molière for Theatre Music.

Since 1986 the wish to pass on the musical-ethnological variety of his work and his meditative-sensuous contact with every form of musical utterance and to share them with others, lead to a range of self produced performances.

In his solo concert “Le Voyage Visuel Musical“ and his production “Musique des 5 Continents” Lemêtre introduced a selection of his vast collection of instruments from all over the world.

In is not his aim to present faithfully traditional music, which should be left to the native artists of these individual countries, but  to convey the essential core of a certain cultural community with the aid of these instruments and to get closer to the feeling and thinking of the people who have built and used them.

Finally in 1993 the Music Theatre Produktion „Il y a une Planète“ was developed, in which Lemêtre summed up his work and his diverse contacts with the cultures of the worlds.
In a fictive “global village”, at the edge of an inhabited planet, musicians, singers and dancers from several countries and cultures “tell” of themselves and of their world – without words, solely with sound and movement.

In 1996 he wrote the music for a text about the atomic reactor accident of Tchernobyl, which he performed together with the actor Georges Bigot.

So, in the meantime, he is not only known through his guest performances with the productions of the Théâtre du Soleil, but also through his own productions  as well as his “Conversation Concerts” with a selection of  rare original instruments from all over the world , which are  now  a steady component of many international festivals.

Unique to Jean Jacques Lemêtre’s concerts and vastly contributing to their great success is certainly the “Concert after the Concert“ whereby members of the audience are inivited to come on stage and to play these rare instruments themselves.
Thus, his concerts regularly end with an improvised session uniting a variety of people, who are complete strangers to one another but inspired by a common fascination.
