Guillaume Cliche

Residence: Montréal, Canada

Guillaume Cliche completed his bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts at UQAM and is now studying electroacoustics at the Montréal Conservatory of Music. In recent years, he has collaborated on compositions and live creations with groups of art performers such as Spirit Duplicata (2009), Les étrangers de l’intérieur (2010) and L’entre-rien (2011). Since 2011, his creative work focuses on electroacoustic composition. His first piece Tape won third prize in JTTP (Canada, 2012) and received an honorary mention from the Fondation Destellos (Argentina, 2012). In 2012, he was commissioned by Jean-François Laporte (Totem Contemporain) to compose a mixed work for one of Laporte’s own instrumental creations. The work has since been presented in the Electrochoc concerts series and in a Totem électrique concert. His work his now oriented towards the possible permutations between soundscape and analogue synthesis via the convergence of direct handwriting and algorithmic processes.
