Séverine Ballon‘s work focuses on regular performance of key works of the cello repertoire, as well as numerous collaborations with composers; in addition, her researches as an improviser have helped her to extend the sonic and technical resources of her instrument. She studied at the Hochschule für Musik in Berlin and in Lübeck with Joseph Schwab and Troels Svane. She perfected her contemporary cello technique with cellists Siegfried Palm, Pierre Strauch and Rohan de Saram. Séverine particularly enjoys working with contemporary composers, who have included Helmut Lachenmann, Chaya Czernowin, Rebecca Saunders and Liza Lim. She has also worked with many of the best known contemporary music ensembles including Klangforum Wien, musikFabrik, Ensemble Intercontemporain and Ictus. She is a member of the Elision ensemble (Australia).
