Martin Messier
Montreal, Québec, 1979
Composer • Performer (objects, electronics) • Visual artist (video)

Holding a diploma in drums for jazz interpretation, Martin Messier has completed a bachelor’s degree in electroacoustic composition at the Université de Montréal, and De Montfort University (England, UK). His curiosity for graphic arts has brought him to explore the relationship between sound and image, in which he discovered videomusic and digital motion graphics. It’s this same interest that inspires him to compose music for dance and theatre, the main part of his composition work in the last years. Recently, Messier has founded a solo project through which he develops live electroacoustic performance borrowing stylistic elements from IDM (Intelligent Dance Music), acousmatic and folk. Based on strong aptitudes for rhythm, Messier’s aesthetic can be defined as a complex, left field and happily strange sound amalgam, constantly playing with construction and deconstruction.
