Gilles Gobeil from Canada compares his work as a sound artist with that of a medieval stonemason who examines cracks in the material. He prefers angular, clearly structured forms, relishes the dynamic force that derives from tension and release, and is positively obsessed with extreme acoustic textures. He says that he takes time for his work, preferring to produce less but to be happy with the outcome. Nevertheless – or for that very reason – he ranks among the foremost electro-acoustic composers from Canada and in the world. Musical studies at the Université de Montréal (Mmus in Composition). Laureate on the international scene: Métamorphoses Biennal Acousmatic Composition Competition (Belgium, 2002, 2000); CIMESP (International Electroacoustic Music Contest of São Paulo, Brazil, 2001, 1999, 97); Ciber@rt (Valencia, Spain, 1999); Bourges International Electroacoustic Music Competition (France, 1999, 89, 88); Stockholm Electronic Arts Award (Sweden, 1997, 94); Ars Electronica, Linz (Austria, 1995); Luigi Russolo International Competition, Varese (Italy, 1989, 88, 87); Newcomp Computer Music Competition (USA, 1987); and Brock University Tape Music Competition, St Catharines (Canada, 1985). Other honors in national competitions: “1993 Grand Prize” from SOCAN (the Canadian performing rights society); “1985 Robert Fleming Prize” from the Canadian Music Council; and “Composition Award” from PROCAN (a former Canadian performing rights society) in 1984. His works have been performed in concerts throughout Canada and abroad. Gilles Gobeil is a member of the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC), Associate Composer of the Canadian Music Centre (CMC) and co-founder of the concert organization Réseaux.
