CIRMMT member Philippe Leroux named Royal Society of Canada Fellow

Philippe Leroux, Associate Professor, Department of Music Research, Schulich School of Music, was named Royal Society of Canada Fellow.

Philppe LerouxL’un des compositeurs les plus joués de sa génération, Philippe Leroux a changé notre perception de la musique. Plutôt qu’une suite d’éléments discrets, elle convoque les notions de geste, mouvement et transformation, à travers la voix humaine, les instruments acoustiques, et les possibilités infinies de l’informatique musicale. Bien qu’il utilise les nouvelles technologies d’une façon innovante, ses idées ont toujours une origine humaine: souffle, trait de pinceau, écriture et mouvement.

One of the most performed composers of his generation, Philippe Leroux has changed our perception of music. Rather than a collection of discrete elements, his music is about gesture, motion, and transformation, realized through the combination of human voices, acoustic instruments, and the infinite possibility of computer music. While he uses technology in innovative ways, the guiding idea is always human in origin – the breath, the brushstroke, memory, and motion.
