Residence: Montréal, Canada

Sound artist, musician and radio producer, Hélène Prévost holds a master’s degree in composition from the faculty of music of the Université de Montréal. She has written music for theatre, documentaries, TV commercials and songs. As a radio producer at Radio-Canada, she produced two important radio shows in the field of new music, musique actuelle, free improv, electronic and experimental music and sound art, with a major interest in new technologies and their application to music and movement: Musique actuelle (1985–95) and Navire «Night» (which she also hosted; 1995–2004). From 2004 to 2007 she participated in Bande à part, a multi-platform project (radio, web, satellite radio) which produces concerts and creates content for the web and satellite radio (SIRIUS 93) in the field of exploratory and experimental music. During that period she participated in a number of events which placed the radio in unconventional situations, such as the Harbor Symphonies of Montréal and the Silophone project with The User.
