Léa Boudreau is a composer and musician based in Montréal. She has nourished a passionate relationship with sound since her teenage years, a time when she would spend days on end as a hermit, listening and creating… oh, how little things have changed! Nowadays, she continues to create in the realms of performance and composition, driven by a desire to explore the infinite sonic possibilities of everyday objects and to express the multitude of musical ideas keeping her awake at night. She has received several awards in recent years: the 3rd prize in JTTP 2019 from the Canadian Electroacoustic Community (CEC), the 3rd place in the SIME 2019 competition (Lille, France), the Marcelle Prize (Faculté de musique of Université de Montréal) in 2019, and the 3rd Hugh Le Caine Prize (SOCAN Foundation Awards for Young Composers) in 2017. Her works have been performed in concert in Brooklyn (NY), Buenos Aires, Champaign (IL), Denton (TX), Lille, London, Marseille, Montréal, and San Francisco (CA).
