Matthew Schoen

The work of Montreal artist and composer Matthew Schoen extends towards various media such as video, installation, and electroacoustic music. A desire to renew audience experience while blurring the lines between music, sound art and visual arts has accompanied his recent creative process. Thus, he has presented his works by means of live audiovisual performances, installations, video screenings, and immersive sound diffusion. He is a regular contributor to Montreal's AKOUSMA festival as well as participating in the local Code d'accès concert series. He was also recently featured at the San Francisco Tape Music Festival, the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival and the International Symposium on Electronic Art in Vancouver (ISEA). He has previously collaborated with dance and theater productions and is a founding member of Montreal's oundwich concert series, promoting young talent in experimental music. Last year, he completed his postgraduate studies in Electroacoustic Composition at the Montreal Music Conservatory under composer Louis Dufort.
