ABSTRACT: 

Franck Bedrossian will address one of the compositional stakes which appear to be crucial regarding his body of works. Through the analysis of several of his recent pieces, he will show how he elaborates the organization of pitches, giving to them a structural function when the music material is mainly composed of noisy textures and sonic combinations which escape any systematic network.
