Cléo Palacio-Quintin

Constantly seeking new means of expression and eager to create, the flutist-improviser-composer Cléo Palacio-Quintin (1971) takes part in many premieres as well as improvisational multidisciplinary performances, and composes instrumental and electroacoustic music for various ensembles and media works. Since 1999, she extended these explorations into the development of the hyper-flutes. Interfaced to a computer and software by means of electronic sensors, these enhanced flutes enables her to compose novel interactive electroacoustic soundscapes and videos. She is the first women to own a Doctorate in electro-acoustic composition from the Université de Montréal (2012) and is a collaborator of the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Music Media and Technology (CIRMMT) at McGill University, where she received the Director’s Interdisciplinary Excellence Prize 2008 in recognition of her having created an innovative bridge between scientific/technological and artistic domains. Besides composing chamber music with electronics, she regularly performs as a soloist and improviser, among others with the Ensemble SuperMusique. Over the years her compositions have been performed in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, UK, and USA, either by herself or various ensembles.
