Gabriel Girard

Residence: Montréal, Canada

Gabriel Girard is an electroacoustic composer from Montréal. He studied under the guidance of Jean Piché (Montréal) and Michele Tadini (Italy) at the Université de Montréal, and the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse in Lyon. Fascinated by Western literature, as well as Oriental philosophy and poetry, he uses his works as an opportunity to explore the link between these worlds and the act of composition. His last piece is an exploration of the reality of meditation.
