Acousmatic Composition – Robert Normandeau

(c) Bernard Préfontaine

14 to 16 July 2017

His empire is within acousmatic music; music that has no visible sound generation. With his diverse works for loudspeaker orchestra, Robert Normandeau has won countless prizes and worked worldwide as a Composer in Residence in places such as Karlsruhe, Paris and Santiago de Chile. He originates however from Canada and studied under Marcelle Deschênes and Francis Dhomont. Since 1999 he himself has been professor for electroacoustic music at the University of Montreal. A major aesthetic emphasis of his works is his endeavour to create a "cinema for the ear". Next to his acousmatic works for concert halls, over the last 20 years Robert Normandeau has also composed a series of stage music works for theatre performances.
