Pierre Luc Lecours
Pierre-Luc Lecours is a Montreal-based composer and multidisciplinary artist. His artistic practice spans many different media and aesthetics, from music to video and performance. His work is characterized by the search for expressiveness in projects that explore an artistic process aimed at establishing relationships between form, format and content. His influences come from the currents of contemporary instrumental and electroacoustic music as well as from electronic and experimental music. Their performances feature everyday objects combined with traditional instrumentation and written scores.
After a bachelor's degree in digital music, Lecours completed a master's degree in composition at the Faculty of Music of the University of Montreal under the supervision of Pierre Michaud. He is interested in the interpretation of electronic music, the decompartmentalization of contemporary musical practices, the dialogue between diverse cultures and musical heritages (electroacoustic and instrumental) and the exploration of new forms of audiovisual expression.
The quality of his work has been recognized by Exhibitronic (2017), the Destellos Electroacoustic Composition Competition (2014), the SOCAN Foundation's Young Composers Competition (2014) and the CEC's Jeu de temps / Times Play (JTTP) (2014, '17). His work has been presented at several international events, including Akousma (Québec), BEAST FEaST (UK), BIAN (Québec), Biennale Némo (France), Currents New Media (USA), Digital Weekender (UK), Elektra (Québec), L'Espace du son (Belgium), La folle journée de Nantes (France), Futura (France), Hybride (DE), Muslab (Mexico), MUTEK (Québec), Next (Slovakia), Résonances électriques (France), Seeing Sound (United Kingdom) and Vision of Future (United States).
