Dominic Thibault

Residence: Montréal, Canada

Dominic Thibault has always been drawn to music. After studying piano during his youth, he turned to guitar. His passion for this instrument lead him to the Cégep Saint-Laurent where he soon discovered composition and sound design while studying with Michel Tétreault. In 2005, Dominic Thibault began a Bachelor degree in electroacoustic composition at the Université de Montréal, under the tutelage of Robert Normandeau and Jean Piché. His interest in acousmatic music, mixed music and musical programming lead him to seek new means of musical expression. Dominic Thibault is currently working on a variety of artistic projects including a series of mixed music pieces with Jocsan Rivera and multimedia installations in collaboration with the visual artist Paul-Antoine Gauvreau, as well as continuing his work in acousmatic art. He is also highly involved in his cultural community. He is the secretary of the CÉCO (Cercle des étudiants compositeurs de l’Université de Montréal) and the technical representative of the International Laboratory for Brain, Music and Sound Research (BRAMS) studio. During 2007, Dominic Thibault’s piece “Nuit noire, nuit grise” was the winning entry in both the V Concurso Internacional De Miniaturas Electroacústicas competition organized by the Cultural Ministry of Andalucia and JTTP 2007 (Jeu de Temps / Time Play) organized by the Canadian Electroacoustic Community. Dominic Thibault is now beginning a Masters Degree at the Université de Montréal, focussing on the influence of rock music in the compositional processes of his acousmatic music.
