David Ledoux [LED]
Residence: Montréal, Canada
As a graduate student at the Université de Montréal, under the supervision of Robert Normandeau, David Ledoux’s interests lies particularly in the immersive potential of the electroacoustic medium, through multidimensional sound spatialization. On the æsthetic level, his work, presented in numerous international events, is heard as an acousmatic montrage, employing recognizable sounds to create sense in an immersive context. The virtual auditory environments he creates engage the listener in a constant circuit of exchange, between sounds and music, spotlighting the musicality of natural auditory environments. In 2018 he was awarded the Marcelle Prize by professors and teachers from the Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Music for his most recent work Cathédrales (2018), while his past work has been presented in international events, including KLG at the University of Hamburg (DE), inSonic at ZKM (DE), EmuFest at Conservatorio di Musica Santa Cecilia (IT) and Cube Fest at Virginia Tech (US).
