Olivier Girouard draws inspiration for his work in the “bends”: a link between two concomitant ideas, the transformation of the relief of sound. He reinvents the way we relate to sound through several collaborations with dancers and visual artists.
Involved in the production and the promotion of sound art, Girouard is also the Artistic director of the collective Ekumen. Olivier has received several awards, namely the SOCANFoundation’s Hugues-LeCaine prize, 1st place, in 2008 and the 1st place of the JTTP prize in 2009. His work has been presented in North and South Americas and in Europe.
