Canada, 1960

Marc Hyland is a composer, writer, translator and visual artist. He started his musical training as a classical guitarist and later pursued his studies at the Conservatoire de musique du Québec in Montréal, where he studied with Gilles Tremblay, Clermont Pépin, Yves Daoust and Micheline Coulombe Saint-Marcoux. His catalogue comprises mostly works for voice and chamber ensembles that have been heard in concerts and festivals in Canada, Europe and the United States. He has been working on electroacoustic and mixed music since 2007. In 2017, he presented a solo exhibition of his visual works produced in the last 25 years at Galerie Carte Blanche. That same year, after a long hiatus, he took up the guitar again and occasionally records pieces for digital platforms. Several of his works can be heard integrally online on his website.
