Filippos Sakagian

Head of Development

Filippos Sakagian is a Paris-based Greco-Armenian composer and transmedia artist whose work delves into the concept of intensity through sound, light, and the body. By blending organic textures, microtonal lines, extreme rhythmic elements, as well as his personal approach to spatialization and lighting design, he pushes the boundaries of sensory and emotional experience.

His output encompasses both live electronic performances, A/V installations and a significant body of instrumental and mixed works for ensembles that explore the connections between primitive and contemporary soundscapes.

He holds a masters degree in instrumental composition and new technologies from the Paris Conservatory (CNSMDP), was part of the Cursus IRCAM 21-22, and has a second bachelor in Musicology & Improvisation from Paris-VIII University. He is a member of the Greek Association of Electroacoustic Composers (HELMCA), as well as the French Composer's Syndicat (SMC).

He has received support from various organizations, including the Meyer Foundation, the Legs Jabès scholarship, the SACEM, and the Tarrazi Fund and has also won several composition prizes, including the SACEM composition prize (2017), the Mixage-Fou electronic composition prize (2018), and the Hertzbreakerz electroacoustic composition prize (2020).
