A multidisciplinary sound artist, Nicolas Bernier creates sound installations and performances, composes live music for choreographies, movies or any moving image medium, and also dabbles with improvisation and video art. Whichever the medium, his artistic concerns remain steady: he seeks balance between cerebral and sensual dimensions, between organic sources and digital processing. His style is one that is stripped from technology's excesses: they serve as a tool – but do not precede the creation process – that is integrated in a global thought, without replacing a sober fine arts aesthetic. Bernier received the prestigious Golden Nica award at Prix Ars Electronica in 2013 for Frequencies. His work has been exhibited in festivals and major cultural centres such as: Sonar in Barcelona, Mutek in Montreal, DotMov Festival in Japan, Transmediale in Berlin, ZKM in Germany, LABoral in Asturias.
