normandeau MMus (1988) and DMus (1992) in Composition from Université de Montréal. Founding member of the Canadian Electroacoustic Community. Founding member of Réseaux (1991), a concert society. Prize-winner of the Bourges, Fribourg, Luigi-Russolo, Musica Nova, Noroit-Léonce Petitot, Phonurgia-Nova, Stockholm and Ars Electronica (Golden Nica in 1996) international competitions. His work figures on many compact discs, including six solo discs: Lieux inouïs, Tangram, Figures, Clair de terre and the DVD Puzzles, published by empreintes DIGITALes, and Sonars published by Rephlex (England). He was awarded two Opus Prizes from the Conseil québécois de la musique in 1999: “Composer of the Year” and “Record of the Year in Contemporary Music” (Figures on empreintes DIGITALes label). He was awarded the Masque 2001 for Malina and the Masque 2005 for La cloche de verre, the best music composed for the theatre, given by the Académie québécoise du théâtre. He has been Professor in Electroacoustics Composition at the Université de Montréal since 1999.

Having produced several instrumental and mixed works, his current endeavors are focused on acousmatic music. More specifically, his compositions employ æsthetic criteria whereby he creates a ”cinema for the ear” in which “meaning” as well as “sound” become elements which elaborate his works. Along with concert music he now writes incidental music, especially for the theatre.
