Nicolas Bernier creates sound performances, installations, musique concrète, live electronics, post-rock, noise improv, video art while also working with dance, theatre, moving images and interdisciplinary contexts. In the midst of this eclecticism, his artistic concerns remain constant: the balance between the cerebral and the sensual, and between organic sound sources and digital processing. Awardee of the prestigious Prix Ars Electronica’s Golden Nica (Austria) in 2013, his work also caught the interest of SONAR (Spain), Mutek (Canada), DotMov Festival (Japan) and Transmediale (Germany) and have been published on labels like Crónica (Portugal), LINE (US), leerraum (Switzerland) and Entr’acte (UK). He holds a PhD in sonic arts from the University of Huddersfield (UK). He is a member of Perte de signal, a media arts research and development centre based in Montreal. He is teaching in the Digital Music program of the Universite de Montreal.
