Robert Normandeau is an electroacoustic music composer from Québec City, Canada. He studied at the Université Laval in Québec City, and at the Université de Montréal, where he studied with Marcelle Deschênes and Francis Dhomont. In 1999 he was appointed Professor of Electroacoustic Music Composition. Having produced several instrumental and mixed works, his more recent 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.
