"Robert Normandeau was born on March 11, 1955, in Québec City (Canada). After a BMus in Composition (Electroacoustics) from Université Laval (Québec City, 1984) he moved to Montréal and completed a MMus in Composition (in 1988) and the first DMus in Electroacoustics Composition (in 1992) with Marcelle Deschênes and Francis Dhomont. He is a founding member of the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC, 1987). From 1986 to 1993, 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 Planetarium of Montréal. In 1991, he co-founded Réseaux, an organisation for the production of media arts events. Having produced several instrumental and mixed works, his current endeavors are focused on acousmatic music. More specifically, his compositions employ æsthetic criteria whereby he creates a 'cinema for the ear' in which 'meaning' as well as 'sound' become elements which elaborate his works. Along with concert music he now writes incidental music, especially for the theater."
