Gilles Gobeil was born 1954 in Montréal and is a composer of electroacoustic music. He studied composition at the Université de Montréal, where he now teaches electroacoustic music composition. A member of the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC), the Canadian Music Center, and co-founder of Réseaux des Arts Médiatiques, an organization for the production of media arts events, Gobeil has received numerous scholarships and commissions from institutes and festivals including ZKM Karlsruhe, GRM Paris, Ars Electronica Linz, ICMC Beijing, and the Banff Center, and his works have won many awards. His approach is similar to the "cinema pour l’oreille" (cinema for the ear), and in turn would like to "donner à voir" (lead to seeing) by means of sound. (www.electrocd.com/bio.e/gobeil_gi.html)
