Musician and composer, the career of Adrien Tyberghein is characterized by his eclecticism, his openness and his anchoring in modernity.
Adrien began music at 6, he graduated from the National Conservatory of Music and Dance in Paris and the Royal Conservatory of Mons (BE). He also took jazz and improvised music training at the Didier Lockwood Center for Improvised Music (CMDL).
In addition, in the field of audio-visual arts, he completed video and sound training at the Fresnoy - Studio National des Arts Contemporains and made several short films.
He won several prizes during his career as a musician (named “soloist rising star” in Belgium, “Young Talent of the Year”, ...).
Adrien's insatiable curiosity leads him to explore a wide range of musical styles: baroque, romantic, contemporary, electronic, world music and jazz. He quickly decided to place improvisation at the center of his musical language.
He has collaborated with renowned ensembles, institutions and festivals (Opéra National de Paris, Orchester Philharmonique de Radio France, Ensemble Intercontemporain, Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth, Ensemble Musiques Nouvelles, Arties, Easter Festival, etc.).
He has also played and collaborated with renowned artists, both in the classical and jazz spheres or contemporary music (Manu Katché, Ibrahim Maalouf, Gautier Capuçon, Claire Désert, Olivier Charlier, ...).
These projects and encounters led him to find his way and to devote himself exclusively to the double bass soloist, chamber musician, as well as to composition. He then pushes the limits of his instrument in an original and unsuspected way.
His Tours and travels bring him to meet various cultures that inspire him in his compositions and constantly nourish him in his improvisations.
His innovative recitals mix classical music, world music, jazz, improvisation and work based on new technologies.
Each recital is a unique story and builds a bridge between tradition and modernity.
In 2020, Adrien writes, directs and composes "Seul Contre Basse", a solo project on stage, transdisciplinary mixing music, theater, dance, video and installation.
You can currently meet Adrien in various projects and in particular in Seul Contre Basse - Récital, with Dyad (Didier Laloy - Adrien Tyberghein), in Water & Fire (Quentin Dujardin and Didier Laloy), within the ensemble Musiques Nouvelles, Astoria or Izvora.
Spotted by Ibrahim Maalouf in 2020, Ibrahim invited him to join the hard core of the "Free Spirit Ensemble", which is the first classical orchestra in the world specializing in improvisation.
Adrien also composes original soundtracks for various films and web channels.
He has taught double bass and Specialized Methodology (applied pedagogy) at the Higher Institute of Music and Pedagogy of Namur (IMEP) and currently teaches at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Départemental de Tourcoing.
Adrien plays on a 5-strings double bass by Laurent Demeyère, a Boris Fritsch and Carbow bows.
