The Tempéraments Composers’ Association was founded in 1999 by François Rossé, Etienne Rolin and Philippe Laval with the goal of promoting new music. They defend a catalogue of previously unedited works and take care of accounting for the composer members. They encourage performers to premiere and to record new works. We promote creativity on all levels, ear-cleaning service, building on risky terrain, taking pleasure with live music performance having fun swimming in cultural seas..
