Thomas Quirion [nzra]

Residence: Montréal, Canada

Thomas Quirion is a composer of electroacoustic and instrumental pieces, and an electronic music producer. He holds a bachelor’s degree in electroacoustic studies with a specialization in creative practices from Concordia University, where he additionally gained experience in studio and live recording. Through his compositional work, he balances sonic experimentation with rhythmic and tonal conciseness, whether in traditional instrumental polyphony, in new musics or in his work with computers. In the latter, he incorporates techniques of granulation, wavetable synthesis, analog modular synthesis and creation by digital audio samples. In his tonal and mixed music work, he explores rhythmic juxtaposition, the limits of polyphony, counterpoint, and the use of extended techniques for string and wind instruments. He has worked on various projects collaborating with filmmakers, dancers, musicians, engineers, computer scientists and meteorologists.
