Cléo Palacio-QuintinCA

Constantly seeking new means of expression and eager to create, flutist-improviser-composer Cléo Palacio-Quintin (1971) takes part in many premieres as well as improvisational multidisciplinary performances, and composes instrumental and electro-acoustic music for various ensembles and media works. Since 1999, she has worked on developing hyper-flutes. Interfaced to a computer by means of electronic sensors, these enhanced flutes enable her to compose novel interactive music and control live video processing. She is the first woman to earn 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).
