International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

At the core of Nicolas Bernier's research are questions concerned with the performance of electronic music and interdisciplinary work—which he nourishes by multiplying collaborative dialogues with the visual arts, dance, literature, and theatre. His research-creation is anchored mainly in sound, which he tackles in several forms: performance, installation, music concréte, live electronics, post-rock and noise improvisation, and video art. Within this eclecticism there is always the search for a balance between the cerebral and the sensual—the organic and the digital. A consummate performer he has travelled the world solo and in various collaborations, while producing over a dozen solo recordings.

His works have won numerous awards, including the Golden Nica (2013) of the Prix Ars Electronica Prize in Austria. Bernier continues to create and perform, while also teaching in the Faculty of Music at Université de Montréal where he is an assistant professor and the Director of the Sound / Matter Laboratory.
