Michel Fano in Paris, 2013

Michel Fano (born 9 December 1929)[1] is a French musician, composer, writer, filmmaker, and sound designer. He developed the concept of continuum sonore to describe the potential for a film's soundtrack to interact with its visual content.[2] [3]During the early 1950s, he was part of a generation of composers associated with the Darmstadt School, and was a lifelong friend of Pierre Boulez. From 1962 until 1975, he regularly collaborated with Alain Robbe-Grillet on cinematic projects, creating partitions sonores (or "sound-scores") for five of Robbe-Grillet's films.[4][5][6]



The following are Fano's acknowledged compositions; numerous works of juvenilia and works-in-progress also exist.[7]

  • Sonate pour deux pianos (1952)
  • Étude pour 15 instruments (Picc.Fl.Ob.Eh.Cl[E♭].Cl.Bcl.2Hn.Ptpt.2Tpt.Sax.2Vln.2Va.2Vlc.Cb) (1954)
  • La Chambre Secréte (Electronic music with text by Alain Robbe-Grillet)
  • Fab V (piano solo, 1995)
