In the 80's Bertrand discovered the use of computers in music, and since then he has considered this tool as an extension of traditional instrument manufacturing and finds it an irreplaceable part in his musical projects. Nowadays he composes for film, live events and above all, theater and ballet. He has been teaching courses on most professional software at CMI for several years, and is specialized in Logic Studio and Live, both of which he is certified in.
