Ilyaa Ghafouri

Residence: Montréal, Canada

ilyaa ghafouri is a Montréal-based composer who graduated in 2018 from the Electroacoustic Composition programme at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal. Starting out working in film and theatre, he now brings this background to the acousmatic scene. His first steps in the world of sound recording were taken in the film industry. Exploring the world via the microphone has since become the cornerstone of his artistic process — for collecting sounds and organizational models, but mostly for the ephemeral experience experienced within the act of recording, his foremost source of inspiration.
