Biography

Oboman is one of the rare musicians whose artistic career is marked by a multitude of original creations. A composer and multi-instrumentalist, endowed with a solid knowledge of classical music, he has taken, with a discerning mixture of discretion and perseverance, an artistic route which is both convincing and makes a welcome change. His creed: create a musical project anchored in jazz and improvisation around the specific tones of the oboe, oboe d’amore and English horn. Oboman has certainly imposed instruments that are little used in jazz. He has, however, above all, created a new orchestral colour, that of sensuality and beat. We cannot help but be seduced by the rich sound, the authenticity and the lyricism of the oboe – an instrument which up until now has been confined to traditional written music - combined with the virtuosity of this exceptional improviser. Since 2001, he has been continuously working, making numerous sound recordings and giving live performances, illustrating the innovative and original character of his artistic initiative.
