Born in France in 1962, Ned Bouhalassa has been involved in the Montréal music scene since 1988. He divides his time between writing for film and television, and composing electroacoustic works for concert. Regularly programmed at Montréal’s Elektra and Rien à voir festivals, Bouhalassa’s works are also heard around the world. For the past few years, he has been exploring hybridization by combining electronic beats with electroacoustic soundscapes. He is also currently interested in integrating video to his work, along with composing in Surround sound. In 2001, he was a member of the music jury of Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria).
