Personal profile


Pierre Alexandre Tremblay (Montréal, 1975) is a composer and a performer on bass guitar and sound processing devices, in solo and within various ensembles. Commissioned and performed worldwide, his chamber music is mainly released by the label Empreintes DIGITALes. He is a member of the London-based collective Loop.

He formally studied composition with Michel Tétreault, Marcelle Deschênes, and Jonty Harrison, bass guitar with Jean-Guy Larin, Sylvain Bolduc, and Michel Donato, analysis with Michel Longtin and Stéphane Roy, studio technique with Francis Dhomont, Robert Normandeau, and Jean Piché.

He joined the University of Huddersfield in 2005, where he is now Professor of Composition and Improvisation. He previously worked in popular music as producer and bassist, and has a keen interest for creative coding.

He likes spending time with his family, drinking oolong tea, gazing at dictionaries, reading prose, and taking long walks. As a founding member of the no-tv collective, he does not own a working television set. More information about him, including his next performances and sample of his music, can be found on his personal website.
