Pierre Tilman

Pierre Tilman plays with words as others play music. He is a saxophonist, writer, essayist, and Robert Filliou’s companion. Tilman belongs to the Fluxus and concrete poetry movements. A ch

ild of the 1960’s, Raymond Roussel, Queneau, Barthes, and Lacan were his tutelary figures, Miles Davis, Hendrix and Boris Vian his musical idols, Les séminaires de Sainte Anne his theater, and OuLiPo his reverie.

The weird music of his visual puns tells of our relationship to the world.
