Martin Marier was born in 1975 in a small, brown and horizontal town. Even though he left that place a long time ago, he is still inspired by shabby taverns, huge and empty parking lots, and the beauty salon “Chez Électro-Lise”. He is mainly interested in live electronic music using new interfaces, but he also composes acousmatic music as well as music for plays and films. He is one of the founders of Point d’écoute, a collective whose purpose is to promote electroacoustic music. He is currently pursuing a doctorate in composition at Université de Montréal.
