Michel Smith is a versatile composer whose origins stem from improvised music and university electroacoustics. He has produced video installations: Drive-In (1988) and Volvox (1987), with Bertrand Chénier, presented at the 1988 New Music America Festival in Miami (Florida, USA); mixed works, for instruments and tape: Fix (1989) for 6 cellos and Tolfle (1990) for flutes and invented instruments; and an opera installation, Le disque vert et ses clartés (1990), presented at the festival Montréal musiques actuelles / New Music America in Montréal in November, 1990. His work currently focuses on the exploration of the contrapuntal language which brings together music and other media.
