Philippe-Aubert Gauthier

Philippe-Aubert Gauthier is a sound and digital artist, musician, junior mechanical engineer, M.Sc., Ph.D. in acoustics and professor at the Université du Québec à Montréal. The heart of his of his artistic approach is based on the interactions of arts, cultures, sciences and technologies. He navigates in a vision of research and integrated creation in which each of these fields of action and related knowledge is used for the development of artistic and musical pieces that address the social and cultural constructions of technologies. Originally a bass player, he discovered and explored music through improvisation and concrete experimentation. His current music and sounds are guided by the ideas of improvisation, immediacy, risk and sonic discovery with more or less stable generative systems. P.-A. Gauthier has produced more than 40 sound works, both musical and digital, and published more than 60 scientific papers in acoustics and audio. He has received grants from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Natural Sciences and Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and Fonds de recherche du Québec - Nature et technologie.
