Montréal (Québec), 1977
Composer

Félix-Antoine Morin explores different types of abstract languages in the context of traditional and new forms of arts, based on sound or visuals. As a child, he was already experimenting with sound on magnetic tape and enjoyed collecting collage pieces on four tracks. As an adult, he studied in several establishments in Montréal. In 1998, an interest for visual art led him to UQAM. During the same period, he was producing himself as a disc jockey. He entered in residency at l’Union (Montréal). Starting in 2006, in Conservatoire de musique de Montréal with Louis Dufort and Yves Daoust, Morin analyzed and studied electroacoustic music composition as well as new technologies for digital creation. During 2007, he took part in the activities of the collective Parabolik Guerilla for Symbolocaust, a multimedia performance inspired by ritual dance and religion (butoh and shamanism). Morin is also a member of the instrumental trio tttttttttttttttttttt, a group based on improvisation with an music album released on the label Evoc in Evens (2006) and two other albums available on Brise-cul-Record (2007-2008). The overall artistic approach of Félix-Antoine Morin makes him a versatile creator. He recently worked with creators of different art backgrounds like musicians of Nuclear Ramjet (2006) and Canadian choreographer Serge Bennathan (2008). His piece Feed Metal Dirt received a second price for the JTTP competition organized by the Canadian Electroacoustic Community. The music of Félix-Antoine were played in Canada at Sound Play Festival (Toronto) and around the world at Em-Horen (Berlin), in France, in Turkey, in Czech Republic, in Sweeden and in Chile. In 2009, Morin received a commission from Totem Contemporain productions to work with instruments invented by composer Jean-François Laporte. Recent works from Félix-Antoine Morin are oriented toward a stratified language living between electroacoustic music and cinema in a immersive digital environment.
