Saxophonist, Clarinettist and French composer, graduated from the Conservatoire de Paris, Sylvain Rifflet is the winner of the competition of La Defense and has received several awards including a "victoire du jazz" and a "Django d’or".
He has performed or recorded with many musicians, including some of the "must-see" performers on the European scene but also alongside American musicians.
Spearheading the young generation of jazz musicians from the first decade of the 21st century, he has collaborated with those who are today on the front of the European "new scene".
Noticed as a composer in 2011 after the publication of "Alphabet" he subsequently published two albums on behalf of the Jazz Village label: "Perpetual Motion - a celebration of Moondog" in 2014 and "Mechanics" in 2015. In 2016 he releases “Refocus” his first album for the historical label Verve.
He has also been a resident of the following structures Jazz au fil de l'Oise, Festival Banlieues Bleues, national scene of Alençon, Conservatoire de Besançon, Festival Like a jazz Machine, (Luxembourg.) and will be associated artist of national scene of Quimper for the next three years.
Quoting Stan Getz as his main saxophonist influence, the composer gladly draws in the field of American repetitive and minimalist music to develop a writing mixing improvisation, repetition, rupture, "bruitism" and even sometimes trance.
