After a BMus in Composition (Electroacoustics) from the Université Laval (Québec City, 1984) Robert Normandeau moved to Montréal and completed an MMus in Composition (1988) and the first PhDMus in Electroacoustic Composition (1992), under Marcelle Deschênes and Francis Dhomont. He is a founding member of the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC, 1987). From 1986 to '93, he was an active member of the Association pour la création et la recherche électroacoustiques du Québec (ACREQ), where he produced the Clair de terre concert series at the Planétarium de Montréal. In 1991, he co-founded Réseaux, an organization for the presentation of media arts events, notably the acousmatic concert series Rien à voir and Akousma. After a certain interest in instrumental and mixed works, his current endeavours are focused on acousmatic music. More specifically, his compositions employ esthetical criteria whereby he creates a 'cinema for the ear' in which 'meaning' as well as 'sound' become the elements that elaborate his works. Along with concert music he now writes incidental music, especially for the theatre." [label info]
