Sébastien Lavoie - During his Classical Singing studies at Vanier College, he discovered the works of Jean-Claude Risset and Francis Dhomont at the notable concert series « Rien à Voir ». That was the foundation that led him to study electroacoustic composition, which he is currently doing at Université de Montréal, under the guidance of Robert Normandeau.
Sebastien regards himself as belonging to this new generation of students in music who uses the Laptop as a musical instrument. And this compositional tool enables him to develop as much on a stage as in a studio.
What he likes in electroacoustic music, is the possibility, thanks to the technologies, that can make alloys between several musical sonorities and styles.
Sound explorator, Sebastien travels through the diverse avenues of noise and music in order to capture and compose the novel sounds.

Roeland Luyten was born in Louvain, Belgium in 1977. He made his first acquaintance with electronic sounds as a kid, when he was fascinated by science-fiction and horror movies. At the age of 8 he went to the music academy in Louvain to study music theory and flute. During high school, he learned to play electric guitar and effects pedals by playing in a music band with his friends. After high school he continued having interest in music which made him decide to study classical music and flute at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp. There he found his real passion in the studio for composition of electro acoustic music under the guidance of Joris de Laet. In 2002 he finished his classical studies of flute at the Conservatory of Tilburg, Netherlands.
Since then Roeland works as a composer and sound engineer along with various theater and dance productions in collaboration with choreographers in Belgium and abroad.
