More Info

"Following the completion of his college studies in guitar, he makes his first recording in 1995, Factotum, devoted to the prepared guitar. At around the same time, he collaborates on the production of radio programs where he performs his first electroacoustic attempts. A year later, these compositions will grant him access to the Conservatoire de musique de Montral. There he completes his masters degree under Yves Daoust and receives the Prize in Electroacoustic Composition. He receives several prizes in composition: the SOCAN Young Composers Competition (Canada, 1998); the Canadian Electroacoustic Communitys competition Jeu de temps / Times Play (CEC, Canada, 2000); the biennial acousmatic composition competition Mtamorphoses 2002 (Brussels, Belgium). His music has been broadcasted in Canada and abroad, but it can also be heard on film and in installations. Christian Bouchard also works as a soundman and sound designer for film and video.
Angle mort (2001-02), Trois miniatures en suite (1997), Parcelles 1 (2002-03), Parcelles 2 (2003)." [label info]
