Since 1985, Gilles Gobeil (b. 1954) has concentrated on the creation of acousmatic and mixed works. His compositions approach what is known as “cinéma pour l’oreille” (cinema for the ear). Many of them are inspired by literary works and seek to “visualize” them through the medium of sound. Winner of numerous prizes in Canada and abroad, Gobeil has been a composer in residence at the Banff Centre, Bourges, EMS Stockholm, GRM, Hochschule Franz Liszt, PANaroma, ZKM and was Guest Composer of the DAAD’s Artists-in-Berlin Programme in 2008. He is a member the Canadian Music Center and co-founder of Réseaux, dedicated to the production of media art events.
