If Whenever

“If Whenever (Alienocene Version)” – Franck C. Yeznikian, 2019

Franck Christoph Yeznikian was born on 22 May 1969 in Besançon (France). After beginning in post-punk music as a drummer, he explored other musical universes, especially acousmatic music, which he studied with Denis Dufour and Jean-Marc Duchenne at the conservatory of music in Lyon. Shortly thereafter he had the fortune of working privately with Klaus Huber on instrumental composition. After receiving his diploma in acousmatic music, he studied medieval counterpoint with Gérard Geay at the Conservatoire Supérieur de Musique de Lyon. He finished his study of composition with Robert H.P. Platz in Maastricht. Since then his music has been influenced by the work of Georges Didi-Huberman in whom he recognises a method of working by associative weaving.
