Denis Saindon, a Montréal composer, was born in 1958. He studied at Université de Montréal under the direction of Jean Piché, Francis Dhomont and Marcelle Deschênes. He is presently working towards the integration of the performer in electroacoustic music, and wishes to create music that is free of any fixed medium, a music that can be actualized with every diffusion. Through the use of MIDI instruments, he wants to give the musician the control of the nuances of the music, its temporal unfolding and certain aspects of its timbre — manipulations which until recently could only be achieved through the use of the tape recorder.
