Residence: Montréal, QC, Canada
Xavier Bourassa is a young composer from Lanaudière (QC). After five years of composition, recording and more than 200 shows across Canada and the United States, he decided to settle in Drummondville to study sound recording. After studying with Gilles Gobeil who gave him the bug for electroacoustic music, he moved to Montréal to study electroacoustic composition at the University of Montréal with Zack Settel and Jean Piché. He is particularly interested in sound poetry, cinema for the ear and ambient music. His compositions are mainly based on text, voice, painting and modern music.
