Gregorian chant, amplified music, persian percussions and photography are part of his artistic self-development. A Master’s graduate in musicology from the Sorbonne University gave him the opportunity to research Japanese contemporary music, whilst also pursuing studies in Musical Analysis (First Class Honour Prize) and Aesthetics (First Prize with Congratulations) at the Paris Superior Conservatoire (CNSMDP), where he received the Monique Rollin Prize from the Fondation de France.

He studied composition with Jean-Luc Hervé and Yan Maresz prior to entering Stefano Gervasoni’s composition class at the Paris Conservatoire. He namely met and received advices from Susumu Yoshida, Toshio Hosokawa, Fabien Levy, Mark Andre, George Aperghis, Raphaël Cendo and Yann Robin. With the obtention of the French “Agrégation” examination, Florent C. Darras has been appointed professor of musical acoustics and contemporary music history and analysis at the Private University of Angers (UCO), where he teaches about soundscape and aesthetics. He is now doing research on Georgian chant with ethnomusicologist Simha Arom. His music has been played by ensembles such as Ensemble Intercontemporain and Ensemble Multilatérale, and he joined the artistic direction of Ensemble Regards in 2014.
