Pierre-Marc Beaudoin

Residence: Montréal, Canada

Animated for a long time by musical creation, it is at first with Michel Tétreault, then at the Conservatoire of Montreal, in the classes of Yves Daoust and Gilles Gobeil, that Pierre-Marc Beaudoin approached the electroacoustic music. His compositions arise from patients researches, where wide soundscapes mix to create real microcosms, at once strange and familiar. He also shows an interest for interactivity and video, elements which he associates with his music in diverse contexts (installations, theater, dance, Vj / Dj). In 2007 and 2008, he was among the prize-winners of the SOCAN Foundation Awards for Young Composers for his pieces Du rire et de l’oubli and Exils. We shall not thus wonder that his work was retained by several recognized theater directors (Michel Monty, Benoît Vermeulen, Daniel Paquette, Suzanne Lantagne), because its meaning strength quite naturally seems to make echo to the scene, which requires as is known, passion and opening.
