THE TONY TIXIER TRIO FROM PARIS

From the upcoming album release “Life of Sensitive Creatures”

Tony Tixier was born in 1986 in Montreuil, France. At the young age of 6, he started studying classic piano at the conservatory. One year later, he made his first stage appearance. He studied choral, classical harmony and counterpoint, as well as writing and composition. He graduated Honors DFE in Musical Training (12 years) and DFE in Classical Piano with Pascal Gallet (14 years).

In 2009, Tony Tixier produced his first album, Parallel Worlds, which consisted of a septet with bold orchestral writing that defines itself as a laboratory of sounds and climates, perfectly illustrating his clear interest in orchestration and musical research.

In 2012, he signed with SpaceTime Record label and released the album “Dream Pursuit” with is American quartet featuring Justin Brown, Logan Richardson and Burniss Earl Travis. The album Dream Pursuit, is labeled “Revelation” by Jazz Magazine.

In 2012 Tony opened for Herbie Hancock at the Jazz En Tete Festival in Clermont-Ferrand with his twin brother violinist Scott Tixier

In 2013, he founded the chamber ensemble MooN Paradox for which he composed a Concertino for piano and string quintet in seven movements, mixing classical writing with jazz and contemporary music. In addition, he led intense concert activities in France and abroad.

In 2014, recommended by Jason Moran, Tony Tixier and Scott Tixier stared in commissioned work by the Artist Janet Cardiff. They improvised and composed the music for this project that was part of the inaugural program for the Foundation Louis Vuitton Paris (Architect: Frank Gehry).

Now Tony Tixier currently lives in New York but often tours globally. Since living in New York he has played at different art galleries including the Jazz Gallery and Iridium. His new album will be released in a few months.
